Kappa Sigma Fraternity Lambda-Delta Alumni Chapter has partnered with the University of West Georgia Foundation Inc. to create the Kappa Sigma Lambda-Delta Alumni Chapter Endowment.
Kappa Sigma Fraternity is currently the leader of American fraternities in terms of its pledges and new initiates each year, along with service hours and philanthropic contributions. Kappa Sigma was the first chartered national social fraternity at UWG.
The Kappa Sigma Lambda-Delta Alumni Chapter Endowment will be awarded to an undergraduate member of Kappa Sigma who attends UWG. The goal of the alumni chapter is to create five scholarships for which members can apply.
This year the alumni chapter is offering the Memorial Scholarship, which is in remembrance of Kappa Sigma members who are deceased.
Tyler Mashburn, local chapter president at UWG, had good things to say about the scholarship.
“We are very fortunate to have alumni support,” he said. “This is a great cornerstone for our fraternity as well as a wonderful opportunity for our undergraduate brothers.”
The scholarships vary in the monetary amount awarded to the recipient and are donated by alumni members of the fraternity.
“We are very excited to be establishing these endowment scholarships for our chapter,” said Alumni Chapter President Mark Stone.
