All of the TKE Educational Foundation leadership and scholarship awards are for the benefit of active members of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity.
This scholarship is awarded to recognize a TKE member who is at least a sophomore with a 3.0 GPA or better. The award recognizes a student with outstanding leadership in the chapter, having served as a chapter officer or committee chair. The applicant must be pursuing an undergraduate degree in engineering or any of the pure sciences (i.e., chemistry, mathematics, physics, geology, etc.). Preference is given to a member of the Beta-Eta Chapter first, but if there is no qualified applicant, the scholarship will be open to any other qualified Teke.
