About the Program

Each year Alpha Lambda Delta awards 37 scholarships to outstanding undergraduate members. Five of these scholarships are valued at $6,000 each, ten at $3,000 each, seven at $2,000 each, and fifteen at $1,000 each. These scholarships have been established to help qualified members offset the costs of education. Candidates will be considered on the basis of merit.


  • Only students initiated into Alpha Lambda Delta between January 1 and December 31, 2018 are eligible to apply.

  • Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher.
