The National Board is pleased to announce that this year we will be offering five scholarships to attend convention. This year’s convention will be August 5-7 in San Diego, California. This year, three of the scholarships will also include the price of a flight. These scholarships are a merit-based, prestigious award and come with a coveted opportunity to present a program from your chapter to all of the chapters at convention.
The National Board will be providing three sisters full scholarships that will cover the cost of a flight (up to $500) and the registration fee. We will also give out two partial scholarships that will cover the regular registration fee.
In exchange for a financial award, we ask that you volunteer at convention, are present for the entirety of convention (3 p.m. Friday to noon Sunday ), attend all workshops and planned events on-time, and have a positive and engaging attitude with other sisters and National Board during convention. Sisters who apply to give presentations at convention will be given priority for the scholarship that includes travel.
To apply, please go to http://tinyurl.com/gsxn4f7 to fill out application by midnight PDT on April 22 in order to be considered for an award. The Director of Finance will notify each applicant the status of their award by May 6. All applicants who do not receive a scholarship will still be eligible for early-bird registration rate even though the deadline will have passed.
In order for your application to be considered, in addition to filling out the form, please email the Director of Finance (firstname.lastname@example.org) a copy of your unofficial transcripts and a note from your Secretary stating that you have attended at least one community service and one religious event this year and still have the time to complete another of each, that you have paid all of Sigma dues and that you have no outstanding fines (Secretaries who apply should have the President write the letter).
Review process: All complete applications will be reviewed anonymously by the Directors of the National Board. The Director of Finance will be the only director with access to the name of the applicant and the rest of the board will only be provided with an identification number.
Any questions should be directed to the Director or Programming at email@example.com.
