Academics are a top priority for Kappa Delta. The sorority provides members with the resources they need to be their best.
Each chapter’s academic support program is customized by the chapter and its advisors. Programming options include study sessions, mentoring members in the same major, individual tutoring, incentives for good grades and more. Further, chapters hold an Academic Success Seminar at least twice during the year. Kappa Delta’s academic excellence focus is designed to grow with members throughout their college years, as their needs and areas of concern evolve.
The Kappa Delta Foundation supports our commitment to academics by awarding nearly $450,000 in graduate and undergraduate scholarships, leadership trainings, internships and professional development opportunities each year to Kappa Delta sisters across the nation. These scholarships have been made possible through gifts, funds and bequests to the Kappa Delta Foundation. Visit Kappa Delta’s national website for more information on scholarship opportunities and the application process.
Our founders considered academics to be the cornerstone of the sorority, and this view is still upheld thanks to our dedication to the pursuit of an education. Our academic excellence program promotes recognition and reward and puts a strong emphasis on our academic goals. We believe that the constant endeavor of making oneself a better woman should carry into all aspects of life, especially that of academia. As members of Kappa Delta, we consider academic excellence as not only a priority, but a responsibility. For Fall 2014, Spring 2015, Fall 2015, Spring 2016, Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 our diligent studying led to great accomplishment; we received first in grades among Panhellenic sororities at Morehead State.
Chapter members are required to maintain a 2.5 GPA to remain on good standing within our chapter. Our chapter fosters the educational growth that is expected of college students; through our innovative academic excellence program, we are constantly reminded of how crucial academic perseverance truly is.
