Sarah Dunleavy Memorial Scholarship


The Sarah Dunleavy Memorial Scholarship is a $1,000 academic bursary given out to a student preparing to go into their first year at a post-secondary institution in the upcoming fall. Please note that this does not necessarily mean a grade 12 graduate. For example, someone who took a year off school after graduating could apply if they are going to a post-secondary institution for the first time in the fall.

The winner will be chosen based on their commitment to SADD and its values over the individual's entire school career.

In 1988, Sarah Dunleavy was one of two people killed when a multiple repeat offender driving impaired deliberately forced the car she was in off the road causing it to crash.

After the crash, Sarah's mother, Roxana Dunleavy, fought impaired driving, first in the courts, and then by speaking to students. In 1990, then SADD President, Rhonda Korinetz, suggested a scholarship be set up in Sarah's name to reward a student who has made a major contribution to SADD. The award was presented for the first time in 1992.

A list of all previous winners can be obtained from the SADD Saskatchewan office.
