One of the primary objectives of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is to encourage scholastic achievement and quality academic pursuits. The Los Angeles Alumnae Chapter’s annual scholarship program recognizes deserving senior high school students graduating from the greater Los Angeles area.
Scholarships are awarded to students who display academic excellence and/or financial need, and who choose to attend a four-year institution. Over the past 30 years, the Los Angeles Alumnae Chapter has awarded scholarships to hundreds of students with an average annual award amount of $12,500 per year in scholarships.
All of the annual scholarships are presented during the Chapter’s May Month Celebration, which is open to the public.
In previous years, special scholarships, are named in the honor of Soror Helen Ball and Soror Dorothy Fawcett, and have been presented to students satisfying specific requirements.
