The Sky Alland Scholarship is a full scholarship awarded to a rising fourth-year student who exemplifies the qualities that helped Sky make his mark not just on the world, but on those around him.

The Process

Nominations for the Scholarship are accepted in the late fall through the end of January and are vetted by a student committee organized under the Office of the Dean of Students. The student committee recommends a list of six finalists to the Scholarship Committee. These six finalists are notified by the end of February.

In the Spring, the finalists attend a Friday evening dinner in their honor, usually held at the Rotunda, followed by Saturday morning interviews with the scholarship committee. The selection weekend is typically the last weekend in March. Following the selection weekend, the winner is notified and honored later that spring at the Alumni Association Awards event.
