Bremen men and women already enrolled in college as sophomores or higher have opportunities for scholarships available from Kappa Kappa Kappa, Inc. (Tri Kappa). A variety of scholarships are available, depending on eligibility, to college students throughout the state. Each scholarship is up to $1,000, renewable each year. Deadlines to apply are in January 2015. A head start to gather the required documents is helpful and advisable.
There are four types of scholarships available from State Tri Kappa: Academic, State Key, Fine Arts, and Twanette Nutter Fleming Award. Following are the eligibility requirements of each.
1) State Academic Scholarship: Any full-time student currently enrolled in a baccalaureate or graduate program, who has completed at least one academic year, may apply. Criteria used by the Tri Kappa selection committee include: academic achievement, strong goals, extracurricular activities, work experience and volunteer service.
2) State Key Scholarship: For those students who have no previous degree and have not been in school for a minimum of five years. Any student may apply who is enrolled in an accredited school offering an associate or baccalaureate degree, enrolled for a minimum of six hours for next semester, may apply.
3) Fine Arts Scholarship: Students majoring in art, dance, drama, or music (performance, visual-graphic or computer-generated art, or educator). Students must be enrolled in an accredited degree program.
4) Twanette Nutter Fleming Music Award is a scholarship which stipulates that the applicant must be enrolled in a fully accredited course of study leading to a degree to teach music in the public schools.
Applications from Bremen students are collected and selected locally by the Bremen Epsilon Pi Scholarship Committee. Deadline to submit is: January 14, 2015. The Tri Kappa State Scholarship Committee will meet in early Spring to select the final recipients. In addition, the person selected will also receive $500 from Bremen Chapter, Epsilon Pi.
