Annual Chapter Scholarship

Scholarship Info:

  

Greetings from the Augusta Xi Chapter of Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority, Inc.

We are thrilled to be offering scholarships to our local community. Last year we were able to award one college bound high school senior with a scholarship and as we continue to build, we are looking to double our effort. This year, we are looking to award two $1,000 scholarships to college bound high school seniors. 


Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority Inc. is a Sorority of more than 2,000 female retirees, veterans, and active duty service members of all branches of the Armed Forces. Mentorship of future leaders is one of the three principles of our organization’s mission of Honor, Unite and Mentor. One of the ways that the Xi Chapter of Kappa Epsilon Psi supports the mentorship of future leaders is by providing financial resources to help pursue a college education.


For 2019, the Augusta Xi chapter will be awarding two scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to college bound high school seniors who meet the criteria listed below:
