Announcing the Alpha Delta Kappa Legacy Scholarship
From Headquarters Fri 3/9/2018, 12:36 PM
The Alpha Delta Kappa Legacy Scholarship was adopted in May 2016 and was established in memory of Alpha Delta Kappa sisters who have joined the Omega Chapter and have designated a monetary bequest to Alpha Delta Kappa for the purpose of scholarships. The Alpha Delta Kappa Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to direct descendants of Alpha Delta Kappa members for graduate level studies. This Legacy Scholarship is to be held by the Alpha Delta Kappa Foundation, and the awards process will begin when the assets reach $10,000 or more. There is currently $4,435 in the Legacy Scholarship account in our Foundation. The Legacy Scholarship will not be awarded if and when the total assets fall below $7,100. It will resume when assets once again reach $10,000. A one-time scholarship of up to $1,000 may be awarded in a region twice annually. Now is an excellent time to consider honoring a sister in Alpha Delta Kappa by donating to the Legacy Scholarship. Use your heart of ENERGY for this OPPORTUNITY and, you will positively IMPACT an educator who is working toward an advanced degree.
