Each year Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation supports over 200 women, providing more than $600,000 in scholarships to make academic dreams a reality. The minimum scholarship award is $1,000, and each scholarship is made possible by generous donors. Scholarship applications are typically due in March each year and scholarships are awarded each June for use in the upcoming academic year.

ELIGIBILITY

  • Initiated members, collegian and alumnae, of Kappa Alpha Theta in good standing with the Fraternity.
  • New Members may apply, but should be initiated by the application deadline.
  • Applicants who expect to have eligible academic expenses (see below) not funded by other scholarships or grants in the academic year for which they are applying.
  • In addition to general eligibility guidelines, many scholarships are designated for candidates with certain qualifications. Available scholarships and criteria are outlined in the A-Z Scholarship Listing. Applicants do not have to apply separately for each individual scholarship. Rather, upon submitting the annual scholarship application, applicants will automatically be candidates for any scholarships for which they qualify.

SCHOLARSHIP USES

  • Toward academic expenses, including tuition, books, and course-related fees for undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Theta membership dues are not an eligible expense.
  • During any term in the academic year for which they are awarded. Unused scholarship dollars must be returned to Theta Foundation and cannot be held by the recipient for future academic study.
  • Full-time or part-time study.

The 2017 Scholarship Application (for scholarships awarded for the 2017-18 Academic Year) is now available. Visit the Apply Now page to access the scholarship application and application guide for complete information on important dates and deadlines, application questions, and applicant and recipient expectations.
