Donate to Alpha Lambda Delta

In 1924, Dean of Women Maria Leonard founded Alpha Lambda Delta in order to honor exceptional students at the University of Illinois.  Over ninety years later, Alpha Lambda Delta is still celebrating success!

Why give to Alpha Lambda Delta?

Alpha Lambda Delta helps members meet the rising costs of higher education with scholarships and fellowships. Since Alpha Lambda Delta offered its first fellowship in 1940, over 1,350 students have received over $3 million from Alpha Lambda Delta. Annually, Alpha Lambda Delta awards just over $207,000 in scholarships and fellowships, but we want to do even more!  Your support can help us!

Many of our former scholarship winners, now successful in their careers, donate to Alpha Lambda Delta to give back to the organization and its members.
