Each year, the SBD Fellowship Program awards eleven (11) fellowships, ranging from $1,000 – $1,500, to qualifying members for use in their academic studies. Each local chapter is encouraged to nominate one qualifying SBD member for the awards (and only one nomination per chapter). Recipients of the fellowships must use them for senior or master’s level study in a business degree program at a regionally accredited college or university.
Who is Eligible to Compete for the SBD Fellowships?
Any SBD member or student who will be invited to become a member during the present academic year and will be enrolled in a business degree program at a regionally accredited college or university during the academic year following the announcement is eligible to compete in the SBD Fellowship Program. The recipient must use the fellowship in senior or master’s level study.
How do local chapters select their nominee?
Local chapters may set their own procedures for selecting their nominee. However, Sigma Beta Delta requires each chapter to use the standard criteria for the Fellowship Program, including the Fellowship Application Form, and the Fellowship Recommendation Form. Local Chapter Officers may download the application form by clicking the following password-protected link. Chapter Officers page.
