"Young OverAchievers of Today are the Leaders of Tomorrow"
This is the cornerstone belief of our 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 $27,000 in Scholarships from 2007 thru 2013. A list of recipients is on the "about us' page of this website.
If you are graduating high school in 2014 and would like to apply for a scholarship please contact us by email or phone. See "Contact" tab.
OverAchievers, founded in 1995, is a Nevada Non-Profit 501(c)3 organization with widespread membership. Since 2006, OverAchievers has hosted an annual fundraiser golf tournament in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area. The net proceeds go directly to our Scholarship fund and a Northern Nevada or Northern California non-profit (selected annually).
We are a low overhead (< 5% annual) non-profit organization.
We believe an environment of comaraderie and joie de vivre adds to our fundraising capabilities.
Our organization is independent, has no political or religious bias, and is non-discriminatory.
The OverAchievers 2013 Fundraiser Golf Tournament, Silent Auction, & Raffle benefiting the OverAchievers High School Scholarship Fund* was hosted at Somersett CC on August 23 in partnership with CARE Chest of Sierra Nevada.
