Every year, the TKE Educational Foundation disburses thousands of dollars in scholarship funds to members of Tau Kappa Epsilon, which are designed to encourage academic excellence, foster leadership skills, and enhance the personal development of deserving students in pursuit of their college degrees. Any Teke in good standing—whether an undergraduate or a graduate student—is eligible for scholarship support. A member in good standing means someone who has remained current in all fees and dues payable to the Grand Chapter and has been involved in their local chapter. The TKE Educational Foundation offers scholarships in three categories: •
Chapter Scholarships: Every chapter has a scholarship fund dedicated to supporting the academic pursuits of its members.
Regional or Area-Based Scholarships: Donors help Fraters in their wider geographic community meet the high costs of education through these scholarships.
Grand Chapter Scholarships: The Grand Chapter offers 55 scholarships to Fraters across TKE Nation, honoring qualified students from all regions and pursuing diverse fields of study.
All scholarship funds must have a balance of $5,000 or higher at the end of the Foundation’s fiscal year (May 31) to be eligible to make an award. The TKE Educational Foundation Board of Directors approves an annual percentage to be awarded. If a fund has not yet reached the requisite threshold for paying out an award, all funds are maintained and invested for growth by the Foundation. For more information about scholarships or to set up a new fund, please visit www.tke.org/foundation.
COURSON SCHOLAR “The TKE Educational Foundation has been instrumental in allowing me to pursue postgraduate education. Because of the contributions and generosity of alumni, the Fraternity is able to provide opportunities for men, like me, to continue our mental, moral, and social development. As a Life Loyal Teke, I am committed to a lifetime of giving that begins now as a law student. I am so extraordinarily thankful for the TKE Educational Foundation and the opportunities it has afforded me to prepare for a life of service through my education.” —Matthew C. Enriquez Alpha-Phi Chapter
