1. BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES

Kappa Alpha Psi, a college Greek Letter Fraternity, was founded at Indiana University in 1911. The
Fraternity’s fundamental purpose is achievement. The Germany Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi
Fraternity was later established in 1964. The chapter established its scholarship program to offer financial
assistance to family member dependents of military service members and Department of Defense (DoD)
sponsored civilians who are graduating seniors at DoD Dependent Schools. Each year, several
scholarships are awarded to deserving students for achieving academic excellence and participating in
activities outside of the classroom. Since the inception of the program, over 150 students have received
academic scholarships averaging $1,200 each.
