Sisters In Service Scholarship Program
With the cost of higher education continually increasing and the availability of funds diminishing, the members of Sisters In Service recognized an opportunity to lend assistance. It is our endeavor to provide resources for some of our young people that earnestly want a higher education.
Our organization offers scholarship awards and book stipends to qualified need based, current Colorado residents ages 17 to 23. These funds are paid directly to a college, trade school, or university located within the state of Colorado, once appropriate registration documentation is received.
