History and Purpose
In 1961 Alpha Delta Kappa, International Honorary Organization for Women Educators, unanimously adopted the concept for the International Teacher Education program as its International altruistic program — a program designed, at that time, to bring women students to the United States for their final year in teacher training. In 1963, the first three Alpha Delta Kappa-International Teacher Education students arrived from Switzerland, Germany, and Argentina. Each student received a $1,000 scholarship. Through the years, Alpha Delta Kappa has increased the size of its scholarships, and today each recipient receives a $10,000 scholarship. Students currently in our program may apply for an additional year. To date, Alpha Delta Kappa has sponsored over 200 students from more than 60 countries.
