Last year, the Kappa Delta Foundation awarded $176,000 in undergraduate, graduate and leadership scholarships to Kappa Delta members across the nation, made possible by generous gifts and bequests from our donors.
Undergraduate applications were due Dec. 1, 2015 and will be announced at NCTA in Feb. 2016. Graduate applications are due Feb. 1, 2016 and will be announced May 2016. Please note: all applications and recommendation forms must be completed online. Handwritten forms will not be accepted.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What are the award amounts? Undergraduate scholarship awards range from $1,000 to $4,000, and graduate scholarship awards range from $1,000 to $5,000.
- How do I know for which scholarship I should apply for? Applicants will be considered for all undergraduate or graduate scholarships for which they qualify. The committee reviewing the applications will determine which scholarship best fits the applicant based on their major and information provided. However, only one scholarship will be awarded per applicant in an academic year. Please review the list of available scholarships to see the criteria of each individual scholarship.
- I am a senior – which application should I use? If you are a senior, graduating in fall 2015, spring or summer 2016 and plan to attend graduate school in the fall, you may apply for a graduate scholarship.
- I have decided to wait a year before continuing my education – can I put my scholarship I was granted on hold? Scholarships cannot be deferred longer than the 16-17 academic year (fall 2016 and spring 2017). Should you not be able to enroll in the fall semester, please notify the Foundation immediately. You are encouraged to re-apply for a scholarship for the next academic year.
- How many scholarships can I receive? Any initiated Kappa Delta may apply for a Kappa Delta Foundation scholarship. Members may only receive two scholarships in their lifetime and only one award will be given within an academic year.
- What does my scholarship cover? Scholarship monies will be written directly to the recipient's school to cover tuition expenses (tuition, course-related fees, and books and supplies) for the 2016-2017 academic year. Scholarships will not be written to chapters or individuals and are not intended for chapter dues or personal expenses.
