About Margaret

Margaret Sanders' career with Walsworth Publishing Company began in 1961. During her storied forty-year career, Sanders traveled the world assisting schools with the publication of their yearbooks. Sanders developed a very close connection with the overseas 'American/International' schools as well as their diverse and interesting populations. Sanders established this scholarship fund to "give back" to the community that gave her so many exciting opportunities and personal rewards. Further, The Margaret Sanders Foundation was established to fund educational opportunities for members of the overseas schools community that she found within our AAIE family. High school students graduating from an AAIE or Regional Association Member School within the various educational regions are eligible to apply. Only one candidate from each region will be put forward for the final selection process.
