Scholarships Available

As the recipient of scholarships from Siena, I can say firsthand how much it can change your life. Many of the scholarships given to students are based on merit, involvement or anything else the donor connects with, which can range from major, family history or even just common interest. Most are awarded by a committee, but there are some scholarships available to apply for now if you’re looking for some extra money in your Siena account.

One scholarship that you can apply for is the $2,500 DECASO Future Quest Scholarship. DECASO stands for the Decorative Arts Society and their scholarship is designed to support students from diverse backgrounds and students who are determined to further their education.
