The Caleb Brown, Jr. Scholarship is awarded each year to deserving African American males who are graduating from a high school in the Cincinnati Area and accepted into a 4-year accredited college or university. In order to receive the scholarship, interested students must complete an application which includes essays relative to their career goals and the importance of college attendance for African American men. The Delta Theta Sigma Foundation is pleased to support these young men as they begin their college careers, as we endeavor to recognize their hard work and encourage their future success.
“The Caleb Brown Scholarship has been instrumental in helping me to pursue my degree. As a result of receiving this scholarship, I have been able to attend my dream school and major in my desired field. Receiving this scholarship has inspired me to someday give back by helping other students pursue their academic goals and dreams.”
