SCTE Sierra Chapter Scholarship

SCTE Sierra Chapter Scholarship is awarded annually each year to a son or daughter of an active Sierra Chapter member in good standings. It awards $1,000 per to the person selected by the SCTE Scholarship Subcommittee; there are myriad criteria that must be met prior to and after selection.

Some of the requirements are:
1. Recipient must be a graduating (H.S.) Senior or have previously graduated at the time of application.
2. At least one parent must be an active member of the SCTE Sierra Chapter and must have been so for at least two years.
3. Recipient must maintain a "B” or 3.0 academic average (GPA) each collegiate year for the scholarship to be considered valid.
4. Recipient must be maintaining a full time college schedule (minimum 12 credits or equivalent) and be a student in good standing.
5. Registration must be submitted prior to the start of the semester for scholarships awarded for the following school semester or term.

These are just a few of the requirements; the SCTE Sierra Chapter board reserves the right to change or modify the scholarship rules at any time.

Submittal Deadlines: Completed Scholarship applications with all required documentation must be received by July 1st of each year. Once applications are received, they will be reviewed by the Board of Directors and a decision will be made within 90 days, or by Oct 1st, naming the successful candidate(s) that will be awarded a scholarship.

Selection Process:  Only completed applications will be considered. All application materials, including at least two references, school transcripts, and two written essays must be received along with the application. Applicants are judged impartially on a point system involving several factors:  GPA (grade point average); SAT/ACT scores; participation in extracurricular activities; references; and responses to the essay questions.

*Please note that meeting all the qualifications of the scholarship, and submitting the application does not guarantee approval of a scholarship. There are other factors that may impact the award of scholarships, such as the funding availability or budget limit approved by the SCTE Sierra Chapters Board of Directors. Applicants will be informed of the approval status after applications have been submitted.
