Alpharetta Tamil School is committed to support students beyond the school limits especially when they step into their college life. Providing an opportunity to receive an academic scholarship is one among them which will in turn ease the burden of their financial needs. With that in mind, in 2021 we established the Paari Saandron  award program at our school. Graduates from ATS can apply for an academic scholarship award towards their freshman year at college. Scholarships are available for seniors at high school. Three scholarships are awarded, $1000 each for three deserving students.

We are much thankful to Mr. Dominic Savio Arokiasamy, CEO of Relevantz Technology Services, Inc (formerly Object Frontier Software) for sponsoring the scholarship in loving memory of his father Thiru. Arokiasamy Mariasoosai.
