TARGET  I - HBCU for Life: A Call to Action


Alpha Kappa Alpha will continue its focus on education with an emphasis on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Chapters will promote and market Historically Black Colleges and Universities and encourage students to attend HBCUs as a sustainability measure.  Activities will include researching and publishing information regarding prominent Alpha Kappa Alpha women and other notable individuals who attended HBCUs.

Recognizing that HBCU funding is one of the primary obstacles that threaten the long-term growth and survival of HBCUs, members will be encouraged to financially support HBCUs.  Alpha Kappa Alpha will implement an
 AKA HBCU Endowment Initiative in partnership with EAF, in which an endowed scholarship will be established at each accredited four-year HBCU.  The goal is to stamp the Alpha Kappa Alpha brand of financial support on each HBCU campus to help students remain in school, complete their course of study, and receive their college degrees.

#CAPSM – College Admissions Process

 

Alpha Kappa Alpha will assist students as they seek admission to college by providing guidance and support in completing the application and enrollment process through the 2018-2022 Signature Program, #CAPSM.

 

Too many African-American high school students lack the basic support needed to navigate through the college admissions process.  Through #CAPSM, chapters will partner with local high schools and youth groups to bridge the gap between high school and college by demystifying the college application and enrollment process.  The educational initiative will extend to all colleges and universities, both HBCUs and non-HBCUs.

#CAPSMis a step-by-step approach to facilitate college admission from researching various institutions and submitting applications through completion of the enrollment process.  Chapters will assist students with: 

  • completing college applications
  • preparing for the ACT and SAT
  • writing compelling personal statements
  • identifying scholarships and other financial aid
  • compiling a portfolio to track college admission results 

 

Through #CAPSM, Alpha Kappa Alpha will improve the trajectory of the lives of talented young people by increasing their potential for success and laying the foundation for positive, productive, and fulfilling lives.
