April 18th News!

Thank you to all of our applicants, we appreciate your interest in SSF! By 5 PM today, all COMPLETED applications will receive either a response of ‘Accepted’ or ‘Wait Listed’ to SSF. This is a very competitive scholarship and the number of applicants is far larger than the amount of scholarship openings for the Fall 2014 semester. If you are Wait Listed, do not lose hope because there will be two more rounds of announcements going out in May and June.

However, if you are put on the Wait List, we recommend that you secure On-Campus Housing for the Fall semester so that you are prepared. Thank you again for applying to our program
