The Washington DC Alumnae Chapter (WDCAC), Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated’s Distinguished Men Cookin’ with the Deltas is a signature program that provides people with a passion for food and cooking, an effective vehicle to support the college aspirations of local youth. This culinary-based community fundraising event has raised over $165,000 for scholarships and other community programs.

This is the 14th annual year for this signature program and this year it is being sponsored jointly by WDCAC and the Washington, D.C. Alumnae Foundation, Inc. (WDCAF). WDCAC and WDCAF have been serving the District of Columbia community for 96 and 32 years respectively through various public service projects. Through the years, each organization has been able to support its projects and scholarships through fundraisers hosted by each organization. Your tax-deductible support through sponsorship and ticket purchases will help take these programs to new levels.

2018 Scholarship Applications Now Available

Category : Blog , Information

Black-GraduatesEnhancing the lives of residents of the District of Columbia, acknowledging educational achievement, and encouraging continued academic pursuits are primary objectives of the Washington DC Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.  The Washington DC Alumnae Chapter’s (WDCAC) annual scholarship program recognizes graduating high school students who are residents of Washington, D.C. and prior WDCAC scholarship recipients who display academic excellence, community service, leadership skills, and who choose to attend an institution of higher learning.

The Scholarship Committee administers the scholarship program for the WDCAC, which includes making available (www.wdcacdst.org) applications to public, private, charter, and parochial high school seniors in Washington D.C.; as well as, recommending students for the chapter’s scholarships.  The Scholarship Committee also is responsible for planning the Back-Pack Brigade (a collection of back-packs & other school supplies).

Winners of Washington DC Alumnae Chapter scholarships are notified in April by the Scholarship Committee, and scholarship awards are presented to the recipients at the Chapter’s Community Forum and Scholarship Awards Ceremony held in May.

During last year’s ceremony we awarded over $30,000 in new and continuing scholarships.  We also awarded four trunk scholarships which consisted of items such as towels, sheets, iron, alarm clock, and toiletry items that students will need when they begin college.

The WDCAC offers the following scholarships to DC residents:
