In recognition of their achievements, each recipient receives a scholarship from the Kappa Delta Foundation.

    You are required to submit one (1) recommendation for Corre Award applications. The recommendation should be from a professional, academic, or Kappa Delta source – so no family members. The intent of this recommendation is for someone who can attest to overall character and/or need for a scholarship. You do not need a recommender for merit or need-based scholarship applications.

  • What can I use the scholarship to pay for?

    Kappa Delta Foundation scholarships can be applied toward academic expenses, including tuition and course related fees. Because the Kappa Delta Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, our scholarships cannot be applied toward Kappa Delta or sorority-specific expenses, including dues. 

    If you have leftover scholarship funds at the end of the year, the unused funds may not be applied to the next academic year’s tuition or your graduate school tuition and must be returned to the Kappa Delta Foundation.  

  • How will I be notified if selected?
  • How will I be notified if selected?

    Applicants are notified via email if they have or have not received a scholarship. The foundation will use your preferred email address indicated in your application. Applicants are announced over the spring/summer. Please be careful to submit an email address that you will have access to while you are away from school.

    Where will my scholarship money be sent?

    In the summer prior to the start of the school year, the scholarship will be sent to your university on your behalf. You will have the opportunity to update your university information before your scholarship is distributed. Your student ID number will be included on the memo line of the check, so the university knows where to apply the scholarship. 

    To ensure your scholarship is applied correctly, the Kappa Delta Foundation sends instructions with all checks asking the university to apply the scholarship fully to your fall semester tuition. You should also make sure to monitor your account to make sure the full scholarship is applied to fall semester tuition.
