Scholarship

Each year the Denver Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., awards scholarships to deserving young women. Denver Alumnae Scholarship award amounts vary from $6,000 (awarded $1,500 per year over 4 years) to one time $1,500.00 scholarships. Awards are determined by academic scholarship, community service and a personal interview.

In 2018 Denver Alumnae will annually offer scholarships to young African American women who aspire to earn a Certificate/Technical/Associate Degree. This scholarship is named in honor of Gloria Travis Tanner and is being awarded by the 2017 Delta members of The Unbreakable XXVII, in the amount of $1,000.00 per recipient.  The deadline each year is April 1st.

Several scholarships are named in honor or in memory of individuals such as the following:

  • The Irma Hudson Memorial Scholarship
  • The Warren Village Gerri Brown Memorial Scholarship
  • Gloria Travis Tanner Certificate/Technical/Associate Degree 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 Shulé 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, Doris Garrett, Goddaughter Cheryl Thomas, and friends.

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 Gloria Travis Tanner Scholarship awarded by The Unbreakable XXVII is named after a long term pioneer in the Denver Alumnae Chapter who had a passion for developing African American women.  In 2000 Soror Tanner established a Leadership and Training Institute for future black women leaders in Colorado.  The institute grooms black women to serve in state government, on commissions and boards.

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.
