Sister to Sister International, Inc. is proud to announce our 2023 “Reach for the Stars” Scholarship  Awards Program. The primary thrust of our higher education scholarships is to award students who  have not received top academic honors and/or traditional financial assistance. We want to ensure  that the families who are in most need will have an opportunity for support. This year we will  reward several students in memory of Delores Hinds for students pursuing careers in  Nursing/Science Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math (STEAM), and in remembrance of  Anthony Taylor, we will reward one student pursuing a career in the Arts.
