Sigma Kappa Foundation requires two recommendations to be considered for any Foundation scholarships offered. The same two letters of recommendation may be used for all the scholarships for which you are applying. Recommendation letters are submitted using the online scholarship application.
FOR COLLEGIATE APPLICANTS: One of the recommendations must come from a chapter advisor, the collegiate province officer (CPO) or the collegiate district director (CDD). Other recommendation sources may be a corporation board member, chapter president, Panhellenic advisor, employer, professor/mentor.
Note: If applying for a scholarship that is designated by a restricted criteria, use a source related to the criteria.
Example: A Theta Tau Chapter advisor would write a recommendation for the Theta Tau Scholarship; a gerontology professor would write a recommendation for the Gerontology Scholarship, etc.
