Scholarships and Academic Awards

Annually, Sigma Tau Delta offers a variety of scholarships valued at up to $6,000 each. Because these scholarship opportunities are offered exclusively to Sigma Tau Delta members, those members who take the time to submit a carefully assembled application have a significantly better chance of receiving an award. Completing the application process is also excellent practice for those planning to attend graduate school or apply for a job. Applications are judged based on academics, service, and quality of writing.

Application Process

Please use the link on the AwardSpring Applications web page to apply for scholarships, submit required materials, and request recommendation letters during the open application periods.
