Foundation Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships 

With the rising costs of college tuition, many members could not complete their education if it weren’t for Kappa Delta Foundation scholarships. To help members reach their educational goals, the foundation provides in excess of $600,000 in undergraduate, graduate and leadership scholarships to Kappa Deltas each year. These scholarships are made possible through generous gifts and bequests to the Kappa Delta Foundation.
