Promoting education has always been a top priority for Tri Kappa. Beginning in 1920, the Iota Chapter awarded four Valparaiso University scholarships of $42 each. Since then, the chapter has contributed almost $500,000 to support educational programs and scholarships. Scholarship applications are available through local High School Counselors’ offices.
Currently, the Iota Chapter awards between $12,000-$20,000 annually in local Scholarships. There are three categories awarded; one Fine Arts Scholarship, several Four-Year In-State Scholarships, and a few In-State Vocational Scholarships.
