Through the Foundation, the Zetas of Charlotte are able to award scholarships to deserving area high school students on an annual basis. The Sarah Scott Schofield scholarship was established to recognize the achievements and potential of graduating high school seniors and to assist them financially with their pursuit of higher education. Established in 2003, the scholarship program recognizes the achievements and potential of high school seniors in Mecklenburg County. The scholarship has been named to commemorate Sarah Scott Schofield, a charter member of the Delta Zeta Chapter. Through her career as an educator, Soror Schofield worked faithfully and tirelessly to help young people succeed in school. We honor her memory and life's work by continuing her legacy of helping other young students excel in education. Since the inception of the scholarship, the Zetas of Charlotte have awarded over $75,000 in college scholarships.
Scholarship applications are accepted in the spring of each year and winner(s) are announced by the end of May.
