Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation is proud to support college and alumnae chapters and collegian and alumnae members of Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity with grant funding to participate in non-degree educational, leadership development, and service-learning programs that help build the skills necessary to promote the widest influence for good and make a real, positive difference in the lives of members and non-members alike.

Theta Foundation awards three types of grants

Education Grants

Education grants are for participation in non-degree programs that provide knowledge and skills for a particular purpose that will develop participants in a broader manner to promote the widest influence for good. Educational programs are of a specific nature or level which would enlighten, guide, train, or develop the individual, including, but not limited to, certification and professional development opportunities.

Leadership Grants

Leadership grants are for participation in non-degree programs that advance personal development and leadership skills and contribute to the promotion of the widest influence for good. Leadership programs provide tools to achieve new insights, build effective teams, or enhance society in a wider influence for good, including, but not limited to: conflict management, group dynamics, vision setting, goal or priority setting, and ethical decision making.

Service-learning Grants

Service-learning grants are for participation in non-degree programs focused on service that promote the widest influence for good and produce meaningful, tangible results to fulfill the needs of a particular geographic area or population.

Applications for Chapter and Individual Grants are available year-round. Grant applications are due quarterly.
