Tri Kappa was formed by several ladies attending the Girls’ Classical School founded by May Wright Sewall in Indianapolis. This secondary school included the first two years of college level education. The young ladies decided it might be fun to form a “secret” organization, to have a few social times together, officers, dues, a password, and a few rules. To ensure Tri Kappa would continue beyond their school days, each member was to start a chapter in her hometown.
Tri Kappa is a unique philanthropic organization existing only within the boundaries of the state of Indiana. A variety of scholarships are available to female high school seniors, full time undergraduate students and graduate students. Applicants should have a strong academic record, strong goal statement, work experience, volunteer service and extracurricular activities.
