Andrew V. Stevenson served as the Associate Director of Accreditation of ACBSP and worked closely with associate degree schools until his death. He was instrumental in creating Kappa Beta Delta, an honor society for associate degree business programs which have ACBSP accreditation.
The number of scholarships to be awarded may change year-to-year. Availability and award amounts for 2017 are as follows:
- 12 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each, open to all Kappa Beta Delta members worldwide.
- 1 scholarship in the amount of $1,000, open to Kappa Beta Delta members who attend schools in ACBSP Region 2
- 1 scholarship in the amount of $1,000, open to Kappa Beta Delta members who attend schools in ACBSP Region 4
- 1 scholarship in the amount of $500, open to Kappa Beta Delta members who attend schools in ACBSP Region 5
- 1 scholarship in the amount of $1000, open to Kappa Beta Delta members who attend schools in ACBSP Region 6
- 1 scholarship in the amount of $500, open to Kappa Beta Delta members who attend schools in ACBSP Region 7
ACBSP Regions Merit Scholarship
Beginning in 2014, some of the ACBSP Regions began sponsoring Kappa Beta Delta scholarships. Each participating ACBSP Region designates and funds the amount of the scholarship. A student from that Region who did not receive the Andrew V. Stevenson Scholarship is then chosen. The eligibility and selection criteria is the same as the Andrew V. Stevenson Scholarship.
Any other region wanting to donate additional funds can do so through March 1, 2016. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to do so.
Visit the ACBSP Regions map to determine a school's membership region.
Scholarship recipients are invited to attend ACBSP Conference 2016 which will be in Anaheim, California on June 24-27, 2017. The students will be given recognition at the meeting of the Associate Degree Members.
Some requirements for the scholarship have changed from previous years. Read through the instructions to ensure all requirements for entry are satisfied.
Scholarship Requirements and Deadline for Submission
We anticipate the competition to be challenging. Each student must meet the following criteria to be considered:
- Be an inducted member prior to the March 1, 2017 deadline
- Must have a 3.0 out of 4.0 GPA or higher
- Must be currently enrolled in college classes (must have a valid class schedule as verification)
In addition to the attached application, the applicant should submit:
- An official transcript (sealed envelope)
- An autobiographical essay indicating academic and professional achievements and community service(s). 750-1,000 words.
- A list of student's personal goals
- A letter of recommendation from student's chapter advisor or faculty member
- Completed and signed Photo Release Form
Students previously awarded a scholarship are not eligible to re-apply. Recipients will only be awarded one scholarship. The 12 scholarships open to all eligible members will be awarded first. Region-designated scholarships may then be awarded to top candidates in the remaining applicant pool.
