Alpha Lambda Delta offers exclusive membership benefits to help you stand out, be recognized, and enjoy a more well-rounded college experience:

Join a Community of Scholars
Alpha Lambda Delta is a great way to meet other students committed to academic excellence. And after you graduate you’ll enjoy a network of over 1 million members across the country and around the world.

Get Ahead
Identify and build on your strengths, overcome obstacles, develop greater self-confidence, improve daily productivity, and learn more effective communication skills. Advance your overall leadership skills – at your own pace – through our innovative ALD Leads webinars, guest speakers, and resources.

Financial Assistance
$211,000 is awarded each year in scholarship money to help fund undergraduate education, study abroad experiences, and graduate study. Your campus may also award scholarships to chapter members only.

Alpha Lambda Delta is proud to collaborate with our educational partners to assist our members in expanding their knowledge-base and financially supporting their academic and professional development.

Change the World
Make a difference in the lives of others by helping those in need. Alpha Lambda Delta chapters give back to their campuses and communities through various projects and volunteer opportunities.

Enhance Your Resume and Be Recognized
Simply being a member of Alpha Lambda Delta is a great resume-builder. You can be as involved as you want to be. You are encouraged to be active in your local chapter's activities, but there's no national requirement for involvement. You've already earned the grades, now accept the recognition!

Start as a GS-7 grade federal employee
According to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, “membership in a national honor society meets one of the requirements for entrance at the GS-7 level in numerous professional and technical occupations in the Federal service.” College graduates without previous experiences can expect to start in the GS-5 grade, unless they meet the criteria for “Superior Academic Achievement” - and membership in ALD checks that box!

Lifetime Membership
One-time fee for life. To keep your costs low, national dues are only $25 - the lowest fee of any honor society in the U.S. Chapters typically add local dues for induction ceremonies, campus programming, and service projects.

ALD has served as a leadership stepping-stone, an opportunity to give back to our community which has already given us so much and created an environment which promotes the idea of academic excellence among its members and their peers. I can truly say I have grown as a person and an academic during my tenure in this great organization.

Fellowship - Paul,Shejuti - UAB.jpg
Through ALD, I found a highly motivated special group of young people who encouraged each other to excel academically, support each other, and to give back to their community. The friendships I made through ALD continue to be some of the closest and most meaningful of my life.
