Academics are a top priority for Kappa Delta. At a time when it was uncommon for females to attend college, our founders were on the forefront. They believed in the pursuit of knowledge as a powerful and empowering goal, and they created an organization that would offer women support for their intellectual endeavors.
Today Kappa Delta remains committed to providing members with the resources they need to be their best. Kappa Delta’s academic excellence focus is designed to grow with members throughout their college years, as their needs and areas of concern evolve.
Each chapter’s academic support program is customized by the chapter and its advisors. Programming options include study sessions, mentoring members in the same major, individual tutoring, incentives for good grades and more. Further, chapters hold an Academic Success Seminar at least once during the year.
The Kappa Delta Foundation supports our commitment to academics by awarding approximately $120,000 in scholarships, fellowships and grants each year to Kappa Delta sisters across the nation. These scholarships have been made possible through gifts, funds and bequests to the Kappa Delta Foundation. Visit Kappa Delta’s national website for more information on scholarship opportunities and the application process.
