The Alpha Rho Scholarship Program

The Alpha Rho Scholarship Program was started in 2001 with the objective of encouraging and rewarding academic performance at the Alpha Rho Chapter of Kappa Alpha Order located on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Since inception in 2001, the scholarship program has awarded academic scholarships to active members of Kappa Alpha Order, Alpha Rho Chapter. Starting with a single scholarship offering, the program now offers four unique scholarships ranging in value from $500 to $1,000. Each scholarship focuses on different aspects of academics, leadership, civic involvement, chapter involvement, and personal growth. We believe these traits reflect the primary values of Kappa Alpha Order. Our scholarship program is designed to encourage each active member to strive to excel and prepare for life after college.

Scholarship Program Goals

  • Promote academic excellence and civic involvement as integral parts of the Alpha Rho experience
  • Encourage and reward improvement in academic performance for all members of Alpha Rho
  • Create opportunities for alumni to become more involved in supporting the actives, pledges, and overall goals of the chapter
