Alpha Lambda Delta offers exclusive membership benefits:

  • Resume Builder
    Simply being a member of Alpha Lambda Delta is a great resume-builder. Students who get involved in their chapters add even more value to their resume.

  • 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.

  • Scholarships and Fellowships
    Over $210,000 is awarded each year to our members in scholarship money to help fund undergraduate education, study abroad experiences, and graduate study.

  • Online Leadership Development
    Alpha Lambda Delta offers to all our members ALD Leads - online leadership development webinars on topics that range from leadership to career preparation. Chapter officers also have the ability to participate in ALD Edge, a series of career-preparatory modules.

  • Community Service
    Alpha Lambda Delta chapters give back to their campuses and communities through various service projects coordinated by members.

  • Recognition
    Be recognized for your hard work and academic accomplishments! Alpha Lambda Delta members are highlighted at graduation with honor cords.

  • Meet Other Top Achievers
    Alpha Lambda Delta is a great way to meet other students committed to academic excellence. Our students build close friendships and frequently refer to their “ALD family.”

  • 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!

  • Partner Benefits
    Alpha Lambda Delta is proud to collaborate with our corporate partners to assist our members in expanding their knowledge-base and supporting their professional development.
