LUKE H. CHATMAN SCHOLARSHIP
2009 Scholarship packet now available
GREENVILLE, SC: The Gamma Gamma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi
Alpha Fraternity Inc. released on January 1, 2009, the
2009 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 (2009-10). The deadline for
submitting the packet is April 1, 2009. 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.
Last year, the chapter awarded one $3,000.00 scholarship for
the 2008-09 school year, and we are expecting to announce a similar
award for this year (2009-10). Currently we have four scholarship
in being fund at various colleges. You can view previous winners
on the Chapter's Web site,
Any questions regarding the scholarship should be directed to
Furman Jasckson, Scholarship Committee Chairman, via email message
