In the 2014-15 academic year, the Sinclair Foundation was able to provide 1,335 students with $1,060,000 in direct scholarship funds, and also provided $2.6 million in program support. The Sinclair Foundation continues to work with the College “to help Sinclair remain among the nation’s leading community colleges.”
