Sigma Alpha is a professional agricultural sorority for women with a sincere interest in agriculture. The women of Sigma Alpha strive to promote scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship among its members. The University of Georgia Alpha Omicron chapter of Sigma Alpha began in September of 2000 and since then has won several awards at the national level, including awards in public service, sisterhood, leadership, and professional development. In addition, the Alpha Omicron chapter received the Founder's Cup in 2003, 2004, and 2005 naming it the best Sigma Alpha chapter in the nation. The women of Sigma Alpha have chosen to offer a scholarship to one female high school senior entering into the University of Georgia in the Fall of 2015. The amount of the scholarship is $500 and will be awarded in September at our Founder's Banquet after the student is officially accepted and enrolled full-time at the University of Georgia. Selection will be based on the student's scholastic achievement, leadership ability, interest in agriculture, and extracurricular involvement as evidenced by high school or related activities.
You do not need to become a member of Sigma Alpha in order to receive the scholarship. The application is for the University of Georgia Sigma Alpha Scholarship ONLY. We encourage students to submit applications for other scholarships as well.
ALL APPLICATIONS ARE DUE NO LATER THAN APRIL 1, 2017!
