LUKE H. CHATMAN SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE IS APRIL 1ST

Greenville, South Carolina: The Gamma Gamma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. released on November 18, 2012, the 2013 Luke H. Chatman Memorial Scholarship application packet, which includes the scholarship application, recommendation forms and instruction sheet.

The chapter will be awarding the Luke H. Chatman Memorial Scholarship to deserving high school seniors starting College begining in the upcoming Fall and Spring terms (2013-14). The deadline for submitting the packet is April 1, 2013. The scholarship is targeted to African-Americans (Males preferred). We are making the application packet available eariler to allow more applicants more time to complete the application. Previously, it was available in late December or early January.

The scholarship is based on the whole person concept, which encompasses academic achievement, leadership, citizenship, athletics and service to the community. Also, an applicant's financial need will be considered in the selection of the scholarships. The scholarship application requires two letters of reference from the community. If one or both of the reference is a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha, the application will receive preference in the selection process.

We are expecting to announce a $3,000 award for this year (2013-14). Currently we have three scholarship in being fund at various colleges. You can view previous winners on the Chapter's Web site, www.gglapa.org.

Any questions regarding the scholarship should be directed to Terry Williams, Scholarship Committee Chairman, via email message at scholarship@gglapa.org. or calling the Chapter number at (864) 441-9067.
