The Berkeley Bay Area Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, a community service organization of college women, is offering college scholarships to high school seniors in Alameda County. This scholarship is open to all students; however, African American students are the primary focus. Although the emphasis is placed on four-year institutions, applications will be accepted from students who plan to attend a community college for financial reasons. The amount of the award will vary according to the need of the student. The award is intended to supplement other financial resources.
