Scholarships and Grants

Internationally, Alpha Delta Kappa biennially awards more than a quarter of a million dollars through its many scholarship programs. The many lives these scholarships have enriched are testimony to the collective efforts of Alpha Delta Kappa.  Alpha Delta Kappa also biennially recognizes a special member with the International Excellence in Education Award for outstanding contributions to education.  An award and $2,500 are presented to the recipient and her school receives $2,500 for staff development.
