The Philadelphia Alumni Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. annually sponsors a scholarship program to aid promising students in the public schools of greater Philadelphia and Suburban areas. The scholarships are for African American male students planning to matriculate in an accredited four-year college following their graduation from high school.
Alpha Phi Alpha is interested in reaching and assisting those students who have demonstrated academic promise but who may not have the financial means to fund their education fully. Quite simply, Alpha Phi Alpha wishes to enhance the opportunity for minority males to pursue and attain a college education.
This year the fraternity will award four (4) scholarships in various amounts ranging from $1000.00 to $1,500.00 totally $5,250.00. In order for students from your school to be given consideration, please ensure that information regarding the scholarship is disseminated, and applications are promptly returned with transcript and all other required supporting documents.
