Each year the Denver Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., in cooperation with Denver Delta Inc., a 501(c)(3), awards scholarships to deserving young women. Award amounts vary from $4,000 (awarded $1,000 per year over 4 years) to one-time $500 book scholarships. Awards are determined by academic scholarship, community service and a personal interview. The deadline each year is April 1st. The scholarship application along with instructions is below.
In addition to the Denver Alumnae scholarships, we are pleased to award three other individual scholarships:
- The Irma Hudson Memorial Scholarship
- The Warren Village Gerri Brown Memorial Scholarship and the
- Delta Mothers and Patrons Club Scholarship
The Irma Hudson Memorial Scholarship is named after one of the chapter’s most active and influential members. Soror Hudson was responsible for the creation of an after-school tutorial program named Shule Saturday School – Education Explosion Project. The program met on Saturdays and assisted students with their weekly homework. The scholarship is awarded each year by her daughters Olivia Hudson-Smith and Doris Garrett.
The Warren Village Gerri Brown Memorial Scholarship is named after another pioneer in Denver Alumnae who had a passion for single mothers. Soror Brown is credited with developing much of the structure of the single mother’s program at Warren Village. Each year Warren Village assists mothers and their children with training, educational development and child care. These efforts help to ensure that the women and children in their program exit with the necessary tools to fully contribute to our society.
The Delta Mothers and Patrons Club Scholarship is given by an amazing group of women, the Delta Mothers. Since the early 50′s this unique group of women who are not Deltas but understand and support our mission of scholarship and service, has raised money for our scholarship fund.
We are proud that our scholarship program has assisted many young women in achieving their goals of becoming educators, physicians, scientists, attorneys, and many other professions. If you were a recipient of one of our scholarships, we would love to hear from you and for you to share how our efforts assisted you in achieving your goals.
