“Sinclair College is thrilled to offer this opportunity to build excitement around fall enrollment and, more importantly, provide vital support to our students who have worked so hard through the pandemic,” said Scott Markland, senior vice president for Student Development.

Students currently enrolled at Sinclair will be automatically entered into each drawing. New students who register for fall classes the Sunday before the drawing will be automatically entered.

The scholarships can be applied toward tuition, books and other expenses. Students must be enrolled in at least one credit hour in the fall 2021 term to be eligible.

Students in College Credit Plus, Advanced Job Training and other non-tuition paying programs are not eligible.
