After receiving the scholarship and seeing the impact it has on her future, she hopes to encourage all Tri Delta members to apply:
“You never know what you are truly capable of achieving until you actually try, and the Tri Delta Foundation is giving you the opportunity to knock it out of the park.”
By supporting the academic pursuits of our sisters, the Tri Delta Foundation is fulfilling our Fraternity’s Purpose of “broadening the moral and intellectual lives” of our members.
