Scholarships

One of the key focus areas of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. is servicing the community in which we exist. To display our commitment to the community, Alpharetta Smyrna Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. partners with the Krimson Community Foundation, Inc. annually to award scholarships to deserving High School seniors to assist in covering some portion of their college expenses. These scholarships are awarded to graduating male students in the Cobb, Cherokee, Paulding and North Fulton counties of the metro Atlanta area. To be eligible, applicants must be a high school senior with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better (based on a 4.0 grade scale), a minimum SAT score of 1100 and/or an ACT score of 20, US citizen and an African-American male. If selected, an official letter from the Registrar’s office from the college/university that the recipient will be attending is required as proof of registration and attendance before financial awards can be disbursed.
