Scholarship

The William A. Sievert Scholarship - 100% of the donations collected for the scholarship fund go to the students.  100%.  We make this happen with the Triangle Connection organization paying all administrative fees.  For example, when you buy raffle tickets at Meet & Greets (and any other donations to TC), that money is part of  TC operating budget and about 20% of the funds annually are used to pay the administrative costs to manage the William A. Sievert Scholarship enabling all donations to scholarship to go directly to the well deserving students. $1,280.00 received Year-to-Date in 2020 for the Scholarship Fund. THANK YOU!

In 2017, the Steering Committee of The Triangle Connection established a scholarship fund for area high school students pursuing further education. One to two such scholarships in the various amounts are available each year. 

In 2018, after the untimely passing of one of our founders, Bill Sievert, we decided to name the scholarship fund after him. The William A. Sievert Memorial Scholarships are administered by the Triangle Connection through the auspices of The Mount Dora Community Trust. 

A successful applicant will be a graduating senior with a 2.5 or higher grade point average who has been a member of his or her high school's Gay/Straight Alliance.  The funds will be paid directly to the institution (university, college, or trade school) to defray the cost of the student's tuition, fees, or books.

A delegation from the Steering Committee participates in the selection of the winner or winners.

Students interested in applying for The 2019 William A. Sievert Scholarship should contact their Guidance Counselor for the application form.
