Your Donation

The scholarship I was awarded went towards my tuition cost and allowed me to continue the pursuit of my bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. I owe this memorable year to the Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation and the scholarship provided.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational
Advancement Foundation, Inc.

    The partnership with the Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation, Inc. (EAF) is a perfect blend of Marriott’s commitment to educational opportunities and diversity. Through the Alice S. Marriott Scholarship Fund, scholarships are awarded to minority students interested in careers in hospitality. The Alice S. Marriott Scholarship Fund was created to honor the memory of Marriott’s co-founder and mother of Executive Chairman, Bill Marriott. She believed and often reminded her children that education was the passport to the world. Marriott is proud to partner with EAF to open doors to a world of opportunity for students who want to pursue a range of hospitality careers.



    We have been a proud supporter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation, Inc. (EAF) since 2008. Our goal is to solidify a lifelong partnership with EAF AKA. We became an official partner with the organization in 2009 by developing the official private label for AKA - The Twenty Pearls Collection. RGA is the manufacturing and distribution arm behind the collection. This partnership allows us to market directly to the membership. The marketing message that we send to the Alpha Kappa Alpha membership is that 'when you support the Twenty Pearls Collection, you directly support EAF'. EAF has proven itself to be a tremendous resource to those who wish to pursue or continue their education. We are very excited and very proud to know that since 2008, we have donated in access of $80,000 to EAF; and the best is yet to come.
