As Kappas strive to make a meaningful change in the world around them, we aspire to empower them with educational support. It’s why our scholarships are built on a simple premise: encourage our members to reach their educational goals.

Scholarships For Undergraduate and Graduate Kappas

You know the type. They’re a Kappa. They do especially well in their classes. They’re involved in campus activities. They’re a leader in their chapter.

Scholarship applications are now open and must be submitted by 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Feb. 1, 2024. No late materials are accepted.

Most scholarships are $3,000 and are awarded for the following academic year. The Kappa Foundation awarded over $1.2 million in scholarships for the 2023–24 academic year.

Applicants must read the entire Scholarships Application Guide, which includes requirements, supporting document information, checklists for each scholarship category, FAQs, a timeline, and more. You will be asked to sign off on reading the Scholarship Application Guide prior to submitting your online application.
