"Young OverAchievers of Today are the Leaders of Tomorrow"
This is the cornerstone belief of the OverAchievers organization. We support this belief by providing scholarships to graduating seniors of No. Nevada area High Schools who exhibit leadership abilities plus scholastic excellence and community involvement. The scholarship selectees are students who have demonstrated above average achievement despite encountering obstacles. Financial need is considered as a final criteria.
With the cost of education increasing each year we feel that helping students achieve their dreams benefits both the student and the community.
OverAchievers has awarded $39,000 in Scholarships from 2007 thru 2016. A list of recipients is on the "Scholarship Program" page of this website.

Our organization is independent, has no political or religious bias, and is non-discriminatory.
The OverAchievers 2016 Invitational Golf Tournament and Online Auction Fundraiser benefiting the OverAchievers Scholarship Fund was held August 4-6 in Reno/Truckee.
24 participants enjoyed the combined 3 day Ryder Cup team and 2 day individual calcutta format. Kevin Powers in his rookie year won the Tournament Championship with the high stableford point total over the 3 day event. Burnt Toast Team, captained by Patrick Hejlik, retained the Team trophy winning over the Red-White Team 35.5 to 24.5.
