Dear Prospective Applicant:
We are pleased that you are interested in our Scholastic-Based Scholarship. This year, the Nu Omicron Zeta Chapter, of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, is granting one (1) $1,000 award to a female African-American high school senior.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is a community-conscious, action-oriented organization established on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C. on January 16, 1920. The sorority is founded on the principles of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood (Sisterly Love), and Finer Womanhood. The founders believed that sorority elitism and socializing should not overshadow the real mission of progressive organizations – to address societal mores, ills, poverty, and health concerns of the day. The Nu Omicron Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta, Sorority, Inc. has been carrying out the principles of Zeta Phi Beta and serving the San Fernando Valley for more than thirty years.
