Kappa Scholarship Endowment Fund Overview
The Kappa Scholarship Endowment Fund is an organization that provides scholarship grants to high school graduates from the District of Columbia in need of financial assistance to pay for their college education needs. Ten outstanding high school seniors are awarded with $1,000 of cash money to help pay for their college costs such as tuition, books, miscellaneous needs and other related expenses.
This scholarship is based on financial need, thus recipients will be based on their financial status, as well as their academic achievements and activeness in community service in their area. The grant money can be renewed each academic year until the recipient finally graduates from post-secondary education.
