Sierra College Scholarship Link  (Main Page)
The online application process means a student only needs to complete one application and the software will determine their eligibility for any scholarships they may qualify for.  Students will need to provide the name and email address of at least 2 references.  An email will be sent to those references selected by the student to recommend them for a scholarship.  The email will provide step-by-step instructions to complete the online process for the recommendations.


This page is meant to be a step by step guide to ensure that you fulfill the requirements needed in the enrollment process for Sierra College.  (Sierra College Website)
