The Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Eta Tau Lambda Chapter is sponsoring our Annual Scholarship Program in conjunction with Alpha Phi Alpha Homes, Inc. and the Alpha Library Committee, Inc. The program benefits graduating seniors from the Summit County schools. Since the inception of the scholarship program, we have awarded over $600,000 in scholarships to Summit county students to assist in the pursuit of higher education.

The Eta Tau Lambda chapter rewards up to ten (l0) $2,000.00 scholarships. Each student is eligible to receive $500.00 per year. Students must be enrolled as a full time student in a four- year program. Those students enrolled in a dual degree program may be eligible for an additional (5th) year.

When submitting the application, please follow the enclosed income guidelines that are based on family size. One of the primary components of eligibility for an Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
