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.
