The Epsilon Epsilon Omega Chapter Scholarship

One of the founding principles of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ® is its commitment to encouraging and cultivating high scholastic standards among young women. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ® has a rich history of providing young African American women with opportunities to go to college by establishing scholarships through its hundreds of chapters. 

The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ® Epsilon Epsilon Omega Chapter which serves Champaign, Danville, Rantoul and Urbana began awarding scholarships in 1960. We have awarded over $200,000 to African American college bound high school seniors through our fundraising and charitable efforts; and we strive to continue this important tradition of educating our future leaders.
