The whole reason for attending college is to gain knowledge and experience. Members of the very first fraternities were not inclined to wear togas. Rather, they shared essays and debated topics pertinent to the educated man. From the very beginning, the ultimate purpose of the college fraternity was to promote scholarly activities.

Today, KA reinforces this educational mission through educational programs that focus on scholarship for four years, not just during your new member experience. Our chapter focuses on every member making the grade through incentives and rewards, scholarships, and competitions. In addition, our national education foundation provides incentives for our members by awarding over $100,000 in scholarships to deserving students each year.

Our primary focus is to ensure the academic achievement of all our members. This philosophy is consistent with our founding principle that the acquisition of knowledge is of the greatest importance. In fact, to join our chapter, you must have at least a 2.75 GPA from high school OR a cumulative 2.75 GPA from any college credits you’ve received.  Furthermore, to hold an office in our chapter and attend social events, you must continue to achieve a 2.75 GPA each quarter. This may seem difficult to some, but as brothers we will work together to help you succeed.

Here at the University of Washington, we also provide a $500 scholarship to incoming freshman to help pay for the cost of textbooks and supplies.
