The Sachs Foundation endeavors to award grants equally to male and female applicants as reasonably determined in conjunction with the variances in cumulative high school grade point averages and financial need. They screen all applicants for their weighted high school cumulative grade point averages. The grade point average cut-off varies depending upon the number and mix of applications, the number of vacancies, and the funds available for grants. Selection is also strongly based on demonstrated financial need, as established in the submitted financial statement, which is part of the application form. If selected, the applicant will be required to come to Colorado Springs for a personal interview, usually in April.
