“Financial support for education allows our sisters to focus attention on their studies rather than the financial burden that comes with an advanced degree. The KD Foundation is honored to award graduate scholarships. We are grateful to our generous donors who make these scholarships possible,” said Beth Martin Langford (Kappa Alpha-Florida State), chairman of the Kappa Delta Foundation board of directors.

Each year, the foundation awards more than $195,000 in undergraduate, graduate and leadership scholarships to Kappa Delta members across the nation. On average, the Kappa Delta Foundation receives more than 10 times the number of applicants to the number of scholarships available. Scholarships are made possible through gifts and bequests to the Kappa Delta Foundation.
