Dear Applicant:

The San Francisco-Peninsula Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is committed to improving the quality of education for youth living in our San Francisco-Peninsula committees. One of the key components of our educational development program is that of providing monetary scholarships for students that would permit them to acquire a bachelor degree. The annual scholarship supports two full semesters or three quarters of academic work and is renewable up to a total of four years. Funds are awarded annually after the applicant submits proof of completion of two semesters or three quarters with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or above for each term, along with proof of enrollment for the following term. The annual disbursement is $5,000.00.

In addition to monetary support, the chapter is committed to assisting the scholarship recipient through the process of matriculation and degree achievement by providing mentoring, leadership development and personal encouragement for the recipient as they face the many challenges that college life may present. It is the expectation of the chapter that all scholarship recipients will maintain periodic contact with the chapter and notify us regarding noteworthy academic and personal accomplishments, along with academic and personal obstacles that the recipient may confront. In response, the chapter will strive to provide assistance and support to the scholarship recipient as needed.
