The Theta Delta Chi Educational Foundation, Inc., awards scholarships annually, by competition, for undergraduate and graduate study at recognized institutions of higher learning. Applications are usually made available by April 1st each year with a completion deadline of June 15th of the same year. To encourage participation we will accept application materials until the end of June.

Awards are usually made in the summer and are payable in October upon receipt of proof of registration for the current academic period.


Applications for Educational Foundation scholarships will be judged on the basis of the candidates' history of service to Theta Delta Chi Fraternity, their Scholastic achievements, and their financial need. Awards will not be reduced, nor applications denied, should the candidate obtain scholarship support from any other source.

Persons not actively performing service to Theta Delta Chi at the time of applying may be considered by petition. Place the petition in your personal statement.
