Brief History: In 1998, the Delta Eta Boulé Foundation was incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)3 vehicle to “pay forward” the life-changing support received by Fraternity members. Since its creation, the Foundation has contributed to the betterment of local community and education organizations, as well as to national and international disaster relief efforts. The core initiative of the Foundation is its Academic Program, which consists of three focus areas, or pillars – providing our African American scholars with access to scholarships, mentorships, and internships. Over 50 merit-based scholarships have been awarded since 1998. Currently, the Foundation supports 22 scholars enrolled as full-time students. Each of these scholars has a Boulé mentor from whom they can seek academic and professional advice. Starting in 2016, the Foundation will provide scholars with opportunities to gain professional experience and build networks via summer internships.
