Sarah's Science Grant

The Sarah Krause Memorial Science Grant has been established in loving memory of Sarah Krause who tragically died during her junior year at Westerville North High School (WNHS). Sarah was an exceptional student and avid viola player who loved everything science. Sarah's family and friends hope to memorialize her through this grant program, by supporting projects and experiences in the Westerville Middle and High Schools that will incite the same love and excitement for the natural sciences that Sarah had.

The Columbus Jewish Foundation administers Sarah's Fund.
