*REGIONAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SCHOLARSHIPS (For current Alpha Delta Kappa members) — The Alpha Delta Kappa Foundation annually allocates each region $3,000 to fund two Regional Professional Development Scholarships. However, the amount awarded cannot exceed the applicant’s estimated expenses.  The Regional Professional Development Scholarships are awarded on the basis of “merit” rather than “need.” The program is for advanced study or a project in connection with a degree program. Applications are available from the Alpha Delta Kappa password-protected website or from the Regional Scholarship Programs Committee chairman in each region. Each chapter president has the name and address of the Regional Scholarship Programs Committee chairman in her region. The completed application and one copy must be returned to your Regional Scholarship Programs Committee chairman via regular mail and one copy via regular mail to International Headquarters postmarked by January 31.
