The Sinclair Community College Board of Trustees has approved $2.9 million in scholarship funding for FY2022. This funding includes $250,000 in supplemental scholarship funding for students who are facing hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional COVID-19 relief funding ($250,000) is also being made available for the remainder of FY2021.
“Each year, the Sinclair Board of Trustees is proud to provide scholarship funding to ensure more individuals and families have the opportunity to achieve their dreams through a quality education at Sinclair Community College. This year, it is especially critical to provide resources to those facing financial stress as a result of the pandemic,” said Dan Sadlier, Chairman – Sinclair Board of Trustees.
Over the past five years, the Trustees have allocated over $15 million in scholarship funding. Sinclair scholarships are available to recent high school graduates, new students, current students, and returning students. Sinclair students also receive a wide variety of scholarships from external donors and outside resources.
“Sinclair’s Financial Aid and Scholarships office provides exceptional service and information to help students navigate the process,” added Dr. Scott Markland, Senior Vice President – Student Development. “We are grateful to the Board of Trustees for the continued support of Sinclair’s efforts to assist students on their way to graduating with the right skills to succeed in today's in-demand jobs.”
Scholarship opportunities include merit and need-based funding to assist students with access, completion, and cost reduction. Examples include Tech Prep scholarships to prepare students for and connect them to in-demand jobs. Sinclair is also hoping to target students who had planned to enroll in the fall, but did not due to circumstances beyond their control.
With the lowest tuition rates in Ohio, Sinclair offers more than 250 degree and certificate programs, including specialized and technical areas of study that are in high demand.
The Sinclair Community College scholarship application period for Spring Semester runs through November 30. For additional information, contact the Sinclair Financial Aid & Scholarships office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-512-3000.
