Grants & Scholarships

Scholarships

SIS recognizes the talent, commitment to service, and the financial needs of local women and teenage girls. One way we support our mission is through annual scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded in varying amounts annually to Sacramento area female students currently enrolled in accredited community colleges or universities. The number of awards varies annually between 4 and 8, depending on available funds which are either donated or bequeathed.  Scholarship awards of at least $1,000 each are based on academic and personal achievements, strength of character and financial need.

On April 16, 2021, six deserving women were presented scholarship awards totaling $28,000.  Those 2021 recipients were:

  • Monet Cook – Howard University (Pre-Med)
  • Phuong Ly – Sacramento State University (Accounting)
  • Lillian Jundi – California Northstate University (Medical School)
  • Brynn Willis – Samuel Merritt University (Nursing)
  • Sophia Pienta – University of California at Davis (Managerial Economics)
  • Cheyenne Martin – McGeorge School of Law

We are currently not accepting scholarship applications; please watch this space later in the academic year for information on Spring 2022 scholarship opportunities.  If you have questions, contact Karen Smith at kmsmith22@gmail.com.

Always review the eligibility requirements for each scholarship before you begin to fill out and submit an application. Applicants who do not meet the eligibility requirements for each of the awards will not be considered.
