Scholarship Committee

Scholarship Committee along with New York Alumnae Deltas, Inc. distributes the Mary McLeod Bethune Scholarship award to college bound youth from the Harlem community. The purpose of this scholarship is to support graduating high school seniors through four years of college in the pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. Scholarships are renewable annually based on academic performance. Additional scholarships are granted, contingent upon the proceeds from fund-raising activities. Most scholarship funds are raised at our Annual Evening of Elegance Scholarship Award Dinner Dance held in the spring of every year. This year we will hold a Scholarship Brunch. Our Past Scholarship Awardees have attended numerous prestigious Colleges and Universities.

To be considered for the scholarship, the applicant must be:

      1.Be a student of African descent residing within our area of service as explained below:
