The fifth purpose of DKG is:
To endow scholarships to aid outstanding women educators in pursuing graduate study and to grant fellowships to non-member women educators
International Stipends Available
The first national scholarship of $1,000 for graduate study was awarded in 1940. Currently 27 annual and two biennial international scholarships of $5,000 are authorized. Voluntary contributions by members to the international World Fellowship Fund afford women from other countries $4,000 graduate study awards to study at universities in the United States or Canada. Many scholarships are granted each year to members by state organizations. Some state organizations offer members opportunities to study outside their own countries. Check theEducational Foundation website and the Educational Foundation news for more specific information.

- The Rose Award is to be given to Professionally Active chapter members for their Outstanding Service to education, community, or chapter (e.g., State or National officer, citizen of the year, teacher of the year, service to the community, honoree of a state or national education organization, or author of a book).
- The Key Award is to be given to a Retired chapter member for her Outstanding Service to education, community, or chapter (e.g., State or National officer, citizen of the year, teacher of the year, service to the community, honoree of a state or national education organization, or author of a book)
- The state’s Dedicated Service Award may be given biennially, in even-numbered years, to a member in Alpha Zeta State in recognition of distinguished service to the Society.
- The Rosebud Award is given to one sister in the state who has less than ten years within the society, has contributed to their chapter, and has worked on state committees.
The Dedicated Service Award was established in 1988 to recognize a member of at least 10 years who had given extraordinary service to the Society on the state and chapter level. Those members who are serving or have served as state president are ineligible because they are recognized on the State President’s plaque. Each chapter president or her designee is eligible to nominate one individual—not necessarily a member of the chapter—whom she believes is deserving of this award. After much deliberation the committee makes a selection, which is revealed at the Alpha Zeta State convention banquet.
