Scholarships

Through Beta Psi Lambda's scholarship committee, we promote and celebrate the higher education of our senior high school young men, who will embark on one of the greatest experiences of their lives as they transition to college.

Over a 30 year period, Beta Psi Lambda has awarded over 200 scholarships, totally over $250,000.

As part of Alpha Phi Alpha’s mission statement, Beta Psi Lambda Chapter promotes “academic excellence,” as there are a number of educators within this chapter, and we administer programs that prepare high school students to position themselves to pursue a higher education through college.

Our chapter’s scholarship program is part of the Fraternity’s “Go-to-High-School, Go-to-College” national program which was established in 1922. The program concentrates on the importance of completing secondary and collegiate education as a road to advancement.  Statistics prove the value of this extra impetus in making the difference in the success of young African-American men, given that school completion is the single best predictor of future economic success.

The Beta Psi Lambda Chapter is a non-profit 501(c) (7) organization and contributions to its separate Education Endowment Fund are tax deductible.  To donate to this fund, contact the chapter at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
