MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Kappa Delta Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of its Confidence U Grants, which provide funding for confidence-building programming on college campuses. These grants will impact an estimated 6,812 individuals during the 2016-2017 academic year. Ten universities will each receive a grant of $5,000.
“The Kappa Delta Foundation is thrilled to offer Confidence U grants to these deserving schools. We were extremely impressed by their plans and their commitment to building confidence on their campuses,” said Bonnie Warren, chairman of the Kappa Delta Foundation board.
Additionally, the Kappa Delta Foundation presents a $1,000 award to one outstanding Panhellenic representative, Greek advisor or university leader who is making a difference in the lives of women on his or her campus. Margaret Burnett, a member of Kappa Delta’s Theta Zeta Chapter at Lehigh University, is the recipient of the 2016-2017 individual award. The grant will be used to fund progressive programs that will benefit the Panhellenic community.
Confidence U Grants are designed to provide funds for universities to raise awareness of the many issues related to lack of confidence among young women, such as eating disorders, dating abuse, alcohol abuse and relational aggression, including hazing, cyberbullying and other risky behaviors.
