Scholarships

Scholarship applications should be filed with the financial aid office well in advance of the quarter for which the scholarship is sought. Scholarship awards are based on financial need, commitment to chiropractic, academic achievement, and any additional stipulations that the various scholarships may carry.

The college’s Student Services Committee meets as needed to award available scholarships. Students may apply for any available scholarship and should be aware that, in most cases, the scholarship is for one quarter only. Some long-term scholarships are automatically renewed each quarter unless the student fails to maintain certain academic or other criteria.

All scholarships are subject to availability.

The following is a list of scholarships:

President’s Scholarship:
A four-year scholarship covering one-half of tuition, awarded to an incoming student who demonstrates superior academic performance by earning a minimum 3.8 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
Academic Achievement Scholarship:
A four-year scholarship covering one-third of tuition, awarded to an incoming student who has a minimum 3.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

Challenge Scholarship
The Challenge Scholarship is awarded to students who have a 2.5 grade point average upon entering, demonstrate financial need and community service, and have overcome an obstacle. Recipients will be required to maintain satisfactory progress and provide a minimum of ten hours of service each term. This scholarship covers one-half of the tuition cost and is subject to availability.
International Tuition Scholarship:
International students may be eligible for this scholarship, which covers up to full tuition and fees. A recipient must be a non-resident alien and not eligible for any federal financial assistance. The recipient must sign a statement that he or she will return to his or her native country upon graduation. If he or she does not return, the scholarship then becomes a loan.

Emergency Loans

The Lyle Sherman Loan Fund and Scallon Emergency Loan Fund both make loans to students to help with emergency situations. Students may borrow up to $500 for 90 days, interest free, to meet unexpected/unplanned financial needs.

Veteran Students

Qualified students who are United States veterans may receive benefits from the Veterans Administration through the GI Bill programs. Veterans should contact the veterans office, located in the Student Services Office immediately after acceptance by Sherman to submit an application for veteran’s benefits.

Campus Employment

There are a number of campus employment opportunities available at Sherman College. The amount that a student can earn will depend on the needs of the college and the qualifications of the student. Salaries are higher than the required federal minimum wage. Applications may be submitted to the Business Office or directly to the various department heads.

Job Placement

The Financial Aid Office offers employment referrals to students who desire off-campus employment. The employment referral service is available to all students enrolled at Sherman College, regardless of their financial need.
