Scholarships & Awards

Golden Key believes in rewarding its members for their academic, leadership and service excellence. To this end, the organization maintains 18 different scholarship programs available solely to its members. The Society rewards more than 700 members annually with exclusive scholarships exceeding US$400,000.

Golden Key begins its scholarship program in September of every year.  One of the scholarship programs, the Chapter Undergraduate Scholarships, are issued at each chapter. This scholarship program is administered independently at each chapter with criteria selection varying by campus. Chapter Undergraduate Scholarship winners are selected annually at each chapter by the chapter leadership.

The additional 17 scholarship programs require a formal application. Each scholarship has a unique submission deadline and application process. All scholarship submissions must be in English.

Impartial selection committees composed of educators specializing in fields specific to each scholarship program will select the winners. In selecting the winners, the committees will consider a number of factors related directly to each program. The decision of the selection committees are final and are not subject to appeal.
