Sia was entering her 3rd year of college in pursuit of fulfilling her dream of becoming a pediatric physician.
In the effort to keep Sia's dream alive, on December of 2011 the Sia Brain Awareness Scholarship Foundation, a
501c3 tax-exempt organization, was founded.
One of the goals of the Sia Brain Awareness Scholarship Foundation is to award scholarships to
deserving Central Florida graduating high school seniors who will be full-time students in an accredited Florida College or University pursuing Medical Science Degree.
During 2012-2022, Sia Yorker Brain Awareness Scholarship Foundation awarded scholarships to 58 students ranging from
$500.00-$1,500.00 during the Sia Yorker Medical Science Scholarship Banquet held annually in March.
