The Joan Keller Servant Leader Scholarship

The Alpha-Omega Carolinas Regional Alumni Association sponsors and awards the Joan Keller Scholarship each year.

The purpose of the Joan Keller Scholarship initiative is to provide active Phi Theta Kappa scholars who have demonstrated servant leadership on campus and/or in the community with financial resources to help defray educational expenses while enrolled in a institution. The 2018 deadline for applications for the Joan Keller Scholarship is October 17, 2018.
