Foundation o

“I have been honored with significant scholarships from Theta Foundation over the years to support tuition for my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. I am

forever grateful and humbled that this foundation values my education, work, passion, and drive for advancing pediatric healthcare.”

The beauty of success is that it’s uniquely different for every woman. One of our founders, Hannah Fitch Shaw, knew this when she said, “When women have the courage to choose congenial occupations in which by proper application they may achieve honor and success, then will they attain their greatest influence … [and] we shall everywhere find them cheerful and contented, and accomplishing the great work of life."

For Theta Foundation, success has been and always will be helping Thetas become their best. We remain steadfast in our commitment to provide opportunities to our members as they seek to make a difference in the world.

Thank you for being a part of this commitment. Following another successful year, the incredible generosity of Theta Foundation supporters made 339 dreams closer to reality. This year's scholarship and grant recipients have career aspirations that include law, entrepreneurship, education, and art, among other unique pursuits.

We hope the following pages leave you inspired by the future of Kappa Alpha Theta. Our members continue to be courageous and engaged in their pursuits, making their communities better and truly accomplishing the great work of life.


Theta Foundation awarded $869,365 in scholarship funding to 299 college and alumnae members for the 2023-2024 academic year. Even more impressive than the dollars awarded are the bright, deserving women who will utilize this funding to change the world.



Our scholarships are established by Thetas and their friends and families who want to make a difference. Because of this generosity, members of all ages and stages of life are on their way to obtaining degrees that will help them achieve their academic, personal, and professional goals.

Theta Foundation’s Chapter & Individual Grants program is dynamic and unique, providing support for members and chapters in pursuit of a wide variety of nondegree educational, leadership development, and service-learning programs. Outside of institutions of higher education and professional membership organizations, few other entities offer financial support for these types of endeavors. Theta Foundation grants fill this gap and provide much-needed funding to help women address issues and solve problems on their campuses, in their communities, and around the world.



Theta Foundation awarded 38 individual members and 2 chapters with more than $44,000 in grant funding. We invite you to learn more about their programs in the following pages.
