Sara Chaiton was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who embodied resilience and strength throughout her life.

Sara was a Holocaust survivor whose life was torn apart by the Nazis when she was just 15 years old. After losing most of her family and community, Sara was able to emigrate to Canada and returned to high school in her 50s. 

This scholarship aims to honor the incredible life of Sara Chaiton by supporting Jewish students who have been impacted by the loss of a loved one.

Any Jewish, female student who is a high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student whose education was changed or temporarily halted by the loss of an immediate relative may apply for this scholarship. We welcome the applications of working and/or low-income students in particular.

To apply, tell us about the person you lost, how they impacted you, and what has helped you persevere to continue your education.
