Wichita Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma Scholarship/Fellowship

Kappa's Golden Key, fleur-de-lis and coat-of-arms represent friendship rooted in a tradition of high honors. These standards are as important today as they were in 1870 when Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded by six young women at Monmouth College, Monmouth, Ill. Since that time, Kappa has grown to 134 collegiate chapters and nearly 300 alumnae associations worldwide.

Kappa promotes, through its standards, a broad college experience. Scholarship or intellectual development is its first priority, and the impressive achievements of its members attest to this. In Kappa, scholarship programs provide an atmosphere for academic accomplishment emphasizing that each member attain her personal academic best.
