Apogee initiated its awards program at the Perm State Ballet School during the 2000/2001 academic year in collaboration with the School's former Artistic Director, Ludmila Sakharova, who retired in 2004 following more than three decades of service in that post.

In recognition of Madame Sakharova's lifetime of achievement and also the example she has set through this uniquely successful form of international collaboration, the Foundation awarded her the inaugural Geidenreikh Honorarium for Excellence in Education and has named its 2005/2006 Apogee Merit Scholarships to Perm students in her honor.
