Since our founding in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta has promoted academic excellence and the importance of education. Likewise, Tempe Alumnae started its scholarship program when we were chartered in 1973 with our "bookships" that helped local high school students cover the costs of books and supplies. Thanks to the generous support of donors and the success of our fundraisers, the program has grown to provide more than $150,000 to support Arizona students as they pursue their educational goals.
We offer two scholarship categories in honor of two of our chapter charter members:
The 2022-2023 scholarship application period is closed. Eligible applicants must submit all application materials for Phase One of the process by February 28, 2023. Only completed applications will be accepted and invited to interview as part of Phase Two.

Middle School Program for Girls Ages 11-14
In 1996, the Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy was created out of an urgent sense that bold action was needed to save our young girls (ages 11-14) from the perils of academic failure, low self-esteem, and crippled futures. The program focuses on social and emotional development, physiological transitioning and exposure to global ideas and learning opportunities in alignment with national initiatives to prepare to prepare young girls for full participation as leaders in the 21st Century.
High School Program for Girls Ages 14-18
Delta G.E.M.S. (Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully) was created in 2004 to expand our youth development programming to high school girls. As we strive for the GEMS to "discover their brilliance," the program enriches young queens' academic success, career planning, and help develop compassionate, caring, and community-minded individuals. With a focus on STEM, the program engages queens in the discovery of career options, college preparation, and learning about our rich culture and heritage.
We know that many of today's young women find themselves in environments that may not fully support their personal and academic development. They may feel ignored or left behind at school, at home, or in their community at the very point in their lives when they are most in need of attention, support, and encouragement. Delta Sigma Theta's youth programs are designed to create an additional support system for parents and their daughters. As Delta women, we aim to share our resources and energies with the young queens in our community to develop new purposes, new skills, and new leaders.
This year's program will be held in-person and will include an array of educational, cultural and community services experiences around Arizona. For questions, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Both of our youth programs run from October to April. Applications are accepted online in August/September with the parent and participant orientation hosted in October.
