Scholarship

Application
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. has a legacy of service that deepens, rather than ends, with college graduation. The women who organized the Sorority were conscious of their privileged position as college-educated women of color. They were resolute that their college experiences should be as meaningful and productive as possible, that they should give back to their communities and be of service to all mankind. In addition to its general awards, the Foundations has created a scholarship that honors the legacy of the Late Betty Vaughn Coles, a charter member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Epsilon Upsilon Omega Chapter. She was an educator who remained active in the sorority and community until her death on April 6, 2018. Ms. Coles was a golden member of the sorority with more than 65 years of service.

The Sandra Yvonne Campbell Memorial Book Award was established to honor the memory of a golden member of the sorority with more than 50 years of service. She was an advocate for women, children and infants. She devoted countless hours of community service assisting those in need until her death on September 28, 2017.

The Bert & Bell Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the lives of the late Bertha L. Dekle and Lillabelle “Bell” Legette, and to continue their legacy of excellence, generosity and service. Both distinguished women were related to a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Epsilon Upsilon Omega Chapter.

The Anna B. Eure Memorial Scholarship was created in memory of an educator who devoted her life to teaching and serving the community.

Her legacy of service continues through two daughters and two granddaughters who are members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

The Stanley Warren Davis Memorial Book Award was originally awarded in 2019 to honor the memory of a phenomenal man who served alongside women of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., as a mentor for youth.

Since then, his family has decided to continue this book award as a tribute to his legacy of leadership and commitment to the educational advancement of young people.

The Monica L. Weaver Memorial Book Award has been established to honor the memory of a devoted member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Epsilon Upsilon Omega Chapter.

Scholarship Awards Reception

Each year the Foundation in conjunction with the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Epsilon Upsilon Omega Chapter, holds a reception to recognize our scholarship recipients. The event is usually held in June where we welcome the recipients and their families. The program includes a message from a former scholarship recipient. Additionally, we showcase the talents of recipients and youth that we mentor. Our goal is to award 10,000 dollars in awards each year. The Foundation since its inception in 2002 is committed to assisting our youth in pursuit of higher education. In 2018 we established an additional scholarship in memory Betty Vaughn Coles for her commitment to education. This scholarship will be awarded annually to a graduate of Trenton Central High School who has excelled educationally and is active in their community.
