Purpose of the Kappa Kappa Psi Chapter Development Award Grant
The Kappa Kappa Psi Chapter Development Grant was created to promote leadership and chapter operations training for the brothers and band programs where chapters of Kappa Kappa Psi are located.
This promotes the mission of the Fraternity by providing funds to bring one or more presenters to appropriate chapter events.
This application was created to ensure a transparent and professional funding process. Once reviewed by the National Council, approved programs will receive funding up to a maximum of $1,000.
Award Criteria and Criteria for National Council Decisions
Applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
