Kappa's Host 31st Annual Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament

The Chapter was chartered in San Diego on April 30, 1950, and soon thereafter, secured a chapter for an undergraduate chapter of the fraternity on the campus of San Diego State University. This Chapter, the Delta Epsilon Chapter was the first Historical African American Fraternity on the campus.
Over the past ten years, the San Diego Alumni Chapter has awarded over
$97, 000 in scholarships to help young men and women from the San Diego County schools attend colleges and universities across the country. Additionally, the chapter has established a mentoring program for High School Aged young men and has given over Two Hundred Bicycles to community youth through schools, the Jackie Robinsons YMCA and the Neighborhood House Association during the Holiday season.
This year, six young men (4 High School Students and 2 Members of the Delta Epsilon Chapter) were selected to receive $1,000 scholarships after having submitted essays, letters of recommendation and being interviewed by the scholarship Committee, led by Dameian Buncum.
