May Allen Scholarship Information

Tulane University School of Continuing Studies is pleased to announce the re-institution of the May Allen Fund’s scholarship awards, which will recommence in spring 2013. 

The May Allen scholarships memorialize Dr. May Allen, a DKG member who passed away in 1965.  Dr. Allen, a native of Yarmouth, Maine, was one of the first women to receive a doctoral degree from Yale University (in 1908).   She was a professor of classical languages at Newcomb College.

The May Allen Scholarships will provide tuition & fees for DKG Epsilon State members to enroll in up to 13 hours of coursework and/or travel-study programs through Tulane’s School of Continuing Studies.  Applications will be considered twice a year for proposed study during the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters.  Applications will be accepted in early March for the following Summer and Fall semester courses and in early November for the next Spring semester’s courses.

In order to qualify for the scholarships, applicants must:
  • Have been members in good standing of Delta Kappa Gamma for at least 3 years;
  • Be employed as a teacher, school librarian, counselor, or school administrator for at least 5 years;
  • Demonstrate merit;
  • Complete and submit a two-part application form, available on the School of Continuing Studies’ website;
  • Have identified the intended coursework and/or travel-study offered through the School of Continuing Studies at the time of application.
