The receipt of your award is such an encouragement and affirmation to pursue my goals. I am passionate about the role I can play in our community with the degree I am earning...I am excited for the opportunity to be able to fill the need of so many people with dignity, compassion and the highest quality of service.

A Message from the EAF President
The primary mission of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation, Inc. (EAF) is to promote lifelong learning. This mission has been carried out by our leadership since 1980. Education can transform societies and renew hope within our communities throughout the world. EAF has worked diligently to fill the void in funding for education.
The Educational Advancement Foundation, Inc. is one of the initiatives by which the 2010-2014 Administration will continue the legacy of enriching lives and impacting communities. We know that education serves as the basic platform upon which an individual contributes to our society and becomes an asset to the community. Our Undergraduate, Graduate, Youth P.A.C. (Partners Accessing Capital), Fellowships and Endowment scholarships will assist emerging leaders in academic preparation and character building, thus providing a sound foundation for them to achieve personal success. These awards will afford opportunities for students to enter graduate programs, and make the dreams of completing an education a reality for others.
The Community Assistance Awards will fund programs which include health, global poverty, economic security, social justice and human right and leadership development.
The Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation, Inc. will soar to new heights over the next four years by working SMART to insure Strategic-Measurable-Attainable-Relevant and Transferable wealth in the form of Education!
Please join us with your support as we continue our mission, to provide education and training in our communities and abroad, thus "Creating Global Opportunities for Success".
