About Susan McGraw

Susan McGrawThis scholarship is a tribute to the memory of Susan McGraw, a dedicated educator with a strong passion for empowering individuals through education. Susan’s commitment to helping people find a better path in life through learning was evident throughout her career. Before becoming a mother to her two daughters, she taught at the middle school level. Later, after raising her children, she served as an Assistant Director at Sylvan Learning Center for a decade. Although she retired before relocating to Colorado in 2005, her family desired to ensure that her enthusiasm for education and community impact continued to thrive.

The 2024-2025 scholarship application cycle is now closed.

Thank you so much for the scholarship this will help greatly for me staying in school without worry of needing to pay during my attendance at Full Sail University. This will bring ease to my wife's mind and help us focus on our daughter and of course for me keeping good grades in the classes without financial stress or burden. We are honored and wish you the best of times for the going future for all that was involved with deciding on this award for my education and the future of my family.
