Founded in 1924 at the University of Illinois, Alpha Lambda Delta celebrates academic excellence among first-year students and has grown to over 275 chapters and has initiated over one million students. The National Council which governs the organization has prudently invested the resources and gifts from local chapters, National Council members, former fellowship recipients, and friends of the Society over the years so that the Perpetual Fellowship Fund now exceeds $4 million and can provide support for 36 undergraduate scholarships of $1,000-$6,000 each, 20 study-abroad scholarships of $1,000-$2,000, and 26 graduate fellowships from $3,000 to $7,500. The fellowships are named for significant people in the history of the Society.
If you are a freshman and achieve a 3.5 GPA or higher in your first semester at UWM, you’re eligible to join our chapter! Contact the Chapter Advisor, Mike Dixon (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
