“S” represents scholarships of which there are definitely LOTS available for which members can apply. Many chapters award scholarships or grants-in-aid to members or graduates earning a degree in education. On the state level, there are eleven annual scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,500. Scholarship application guidelines vary, but can be found on the Epsilon State website.
On the international level, the Society offers 29 annual scholarships of $6,000 each. The Society also awards two biennial international scholarships given in alternating years. To qualify for a scholarship at the international level, the applicant must have been an active member for a minimum of three years, have a master’s degree, be enrolled in a graduate program, and provide evidence of excellence in scholarship and service to the community. Application packets are available for download at http://www.dkg.org/.
A commitment to education is in fact what Delta Kappa Gamma is all about. Society membership empowers us through knowledge and professional development to reach our full potential. However, empowerment alone is not enough. It is up to us to take advantage of the many opportunities and connections afforded by the Society in order to be actively engaged and participate to the fullest.
