Congratulations to our 2020 recipients!

Every year the Alpha Sigma Tau Foundation awards scholarships to aid Sisters in their academic pursuits. The 2020 scholarship cycle is now closed, but stay tuned for information about our next scholarship cycle and application.

In the meantime, click here to meet the 35 Alpha Sigma Tau members who received scholarship support this year.


To qualify for an Alpha Sigma Tau Scholarship, you must:

  • Fully complete the entire General Scholarship Application, including all necessary attachments

What to Know Before You Begin

  1. Once you begin an application, you can save and return to it later.
  2. You must complete the General Application to be considered for any award. Some awards have additional application components. Each award and its criteria are listed below.
  3. Reference letters are required and are submitted directly by your references to your application. You will include your references’ names and email addresses. They will receive a direct link to load their letter to your application. This is the only way your reference letters will be received so enter that information early to allow references ample time to complete their portion of the application.
  4. Some portions of the application are open-ended text box responses and other portions require uploads of documentation. Consider creating your open-ended responses in advance to avoid proof-reading errors.
  5. The due date for all materials is January 15, 2021.
