Education is one of Omega Phi Alpha’s core values and is the foundation that equips all of our members to act upon our shared values.
In the spirit of supporting education, the Omega Phi Alpha Foundation will be accepting applications for the Pamela McCullough McEwen Memorial Scholarship between March 17 – April 15. These $250 scholarships are available for both undergraduate and graduate students.
New for 2021
Historically, through the Omega Phi Alpha Scholarship Trust, scholarships have been awarded to members of active chapters pursuing undergraduate studies. When the Omega Phi Alpha Foundation assumed responsibility for the scholarships, board members recognized that many Omega Phi Alpha alumni are pursuing graduate education. Omega Phi Alpha values lifelong learners who strive to understand the challenges and needs around them and actively make a positive difference. As a result, the Omega Phi Alpha Foundation board has earmarked one scholarship to specifically support an alum pursuing graduate studies.
