The adult student is a growing part of American higher education because we live in a Lifelong Learning Society. Alpha Sigma Lambda, as the largest adult student honorary is committed to supporting adult students’ access to higher education.
Many university scholarship programs are not oriented to adult students so ASLHS is committed to help with this scholarship problem. Alpha Sigma Lambda has established adult scholarships to help meet this important need. Each year, Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society awards scholarships to adult learners who meet criteria, including a financial need for assistance to complete their degree. Funds for the scholarships come from sales of ASL merchandise, as well as individual donations to the scholarship funds. Our goal is to increase the number and/or amount of the scholarships given each year.
Please help us reach our goal by donating to these scholarships to support adult students to continue their education.
All donations are tax deductible.
