The 2016-17 Sierra College scholarship competition is now open. The deadline to submit the application is March 31, 2016. Recommenders have until April 7, 2016 to submit the recommendation form. If you created a scholarship account in a previous year do not create a new account. If you do not remember your password, it can be reset. Further instructions are provided on the Scholarship Manager website.
The selection for all awards will be made in May. The Award and Scholarship Celebration will be held in September to introduce scholarship recipients. Unless donors have special criteria for disbursing their scholarship, all recipients receive one-half of their disbursement after Fall 2016 semester add/drop in September and one-half after add/drop in February for the Spring 2017 semester. Recipients attending a transfer institution will need to submit verification of enrollment from the Records Office of their transfer school.
