The Savannah ALPHA DELTA KAPPA scholarship was established in the 1980’s by the chapters of the Savannah, Georgia City Council.  In 1990, the scholarship was named the MELBA PRIESTLEY ALPHA DELTA KAPPA SCHOLARSHIP to honor Melba Priestley, a local educator, a member of Alpha Gamma Chapter, past Georgia State President, and past International President of Alpha Delta Kappa.

The scholarship is awarded every two years (odd numbered years) to a qualified college Junior, Senior, or Graduate student currently preparing for a career in education.  It is funded by members of Epsilon and Alpha Gamma Chapters in Savannah, and interest from an investment fund in the Alpha Delta Kappa Foundation. The fund receives memorial contributions and donations from members and others who support the ideals and principles of Alpha Delta Kappa.

The purpose of this scholarship shall be to encourage commitment to educational excellence, and to give financial assistance to teachers or those preparing to teach.

It is awarded locally by a Board of Directors of the Melba Priestley Alpha Delta Kappa Scholarship.
