Scholorships for the  2022/23 School Year 

For more than two decades, Progress 64 West has awarded area high school seniors the Louis S. Sachs Scholarship in honor of the late Louis S. Sachs, a visionary entrepreneur. Our program is unique because seniors submit a business plan to apply for the scholarship. Our past winners include emerging entrepreneurs, senior-level managers, a surgeon, and more. We're launching our scholarship program for the 2022/23 school year.  Previous scholarship winners joined our members back in June to share what they've been doing and how the scholarship impacted their lives.  Talk about inspiring stories!  Get your application today!
