La Sierra University Department of Social Work Scholarship


This is a new scholarship for students interested in social work. The scholarship is worth $1,940 for the first 30 Evening Adult Degree students who register for the SOWK 214 Generalist Practice course for fall 2023 at La Sierra University. So, in addition to the usual 50% tuition discount, this no-cost credit-bearing class allows students to get a jump on a bachelor's in social work.


Last Mile invests in the next generation of technology talent and therefore, offers financial assistance to unrepresented students majoring in tech and engineering. Emergency grants up to $599 are typically awarded within a few days. Larger grants (up to $10K) are awarded to students who demonstrate a high degree of need.
