The Kansas State Brothers of the Phi Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc., a historically Latino-based fraternity, are most honored to present the Sigma Lambda Beta Latino/a Immigrant Scholarship. This scholarship was founded on the principles that all individuals should have the opportunity to better themselves, that individual growth leads to positive community growth which leads to a healthy state economy. In the state of Kansas, too many immigrant students have been unable to reach for such goals. For these reasons, the men of Sigma Lambda Beta have chosen to address the plight of Latino/a immigrants’ educational opportunities through the establishment of this scholarship and we invite the contributions of all in the community.
Our scholarship will help students that receive no federal or state financial assistance. Students applying to this scholarship do not have to prove citizenship or residency status. Our first goal is to raise $12,000 to establish an endowed account, and then to grow the scholarship in order to reach more students’ needs. It is our intention to further the ability of Latinos in Kansas to become positive contributors and leaders in our communities and in our state.

Perhaps you too received a helping hand along the way, or wish there had been a hand to help you. It is our hope, that if you share our values and dreams of more equitable access to education, you will show your commitment with a generous, tax-deductible donation to the Sigma Lambda Beta Latino/a Immigrant Scholarship.
