About the Sierra College Patrons

Formed in 1984, the Patrons provide financial support to the Arts and Humanities departments at Sierra College providing $5000 in grants each year. Grants are designed to directly affect students as much as possible. In addition, a $500 scholarship is awarded annually to a student in the arts including Music, Art and Drama. Three small awards of $50 each recognize outstanding students competing in the annual student art show. Further grants may be awarded during the year to enhance the services offered by academic departments. Since its inception, the Patrons Club has donated more than $350,000 to Sierra College, affecting and improving all aspects of campus life.
