Programs and results

College tuition hikes and decreasing financial aid have caused more and more students to apply to the Delta Phi Lambda Foundation for scholarship assistance each year.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Academic Excellence Scholarship

Thirteen percent of Asian Americans and 17 percent of Pacific Islanders live in poverty compared to 12 percent of the general population, with several Asian American ethnic groups having poverty rates significantly higher than many other ethnic groups in the United States. Studies show that AAPI students may be marginalized and overlooked in leadership development programs on college campuses; in addition, they may not readily relate to or embrace the label of "leader" relative to their peers. The Delta Phi Lambda Foundation seeks to alleviate this disparity by providing opportunities for AAPI women

The Delta Phi Lambda Foundation offers a scholarship to recognize sisters who have not only devoted herself to the sorority, but also to her future by upholding a standard of excellence in her college academic career.Only sisters who have maintained good standing for the entire year and are enrolled for the fall term at their respective university are eligible for the academic scholarship.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Foundation is committed to getting more students to and through college.

Our mission is to empower the women of Delta Phi Lambda and the communities they serve by funding scholarships, supporting philanthropic endeavors, and promoting leadership education.

In 2019, Delta Phi Lambda Foundation has continued to sponsor scholarships for the annual Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values (AFLV) Central Conference because of the leadership education and networking opportunity the conference provides.

Each year at the Delta Phi Lambda National Convention, the Delta Phi Lambda Foundation awards two scholarships: the Academic Excellence Scholarship and the Hannah Seoh Alumnae Scholarship. The recipients of these scholarships demonstrate academic excellence, strong leadership, and a commitment to serve. In 2019, we are fortunate to be able to provide $1,000 for each scholarship thanks to the generosity of our donors.

2018 by the Numbers

Raised over $14,000 in revenue, with ~$6,000 in reserves for 2019
Awarded close to $5,000 in scholarships to seven sisters
