Scholarships and Academic Awards

Interested in a scholarship but want to include your activities from this academic year in the application? Want time to research the best programs? Not yet quite sure what you will be doing in Fall 2016? In an effort to make scholarships work better for you, we are changing numerous deadlines from fall to spring. We also will offer a workshop at the 2016 Convention in  Minneapolis on applying for scholarships. The submission process will be easier than  ever with our new application platform. In short, there has never been a better time to consider applying for over $100,000 in scholarships and awards!

Annually, Sigma Tau Delta offers a variety of scholarships valued at up to $5,000 each. Because these scholarship opportunities are offered exclusively to Sigma Tau Delta members, those members who take the time to submit a carefully put-together application obviously have a significantly increased chance of receiving an award—and completing the application process is excellent practice for those planning to attend graduate school or apply for a job. Applications are judged based on academics and service, as well as on the quality of writing in essays or statements that are required for the scholarships.

Application Process

Sigma Tau Delta uses AwardSpring platform for the application process. Please use the AwardSpring link on the AwardSpring Applications web page to apply for scholarships, submit required materials, and request recommendation letters.
