Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students (SDS) Application and Guidelines
Note* The cycle for the Scholarship for Disadvantaged Student Grant (SDS) is every 4 years. Our application for the SDS Grant between 2016-2020 was denied by Health Resources and Services Administration HRSA. This means we will not have any SDS Grant funding for the period 2016-2020. We plan to apply again in 2020.
We will be searching for other funding to help support our disadvantaged student population, but there is no guarantee of other funds at this time.
