Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Joliet/Area South Suburban Alumnae Chapter is pleased to announce our annual Academic Scholarship Award Program. This scholarship award is designed to identify and provide financial assistance to students of color aspiring to further their education.  For over 40 years, JASSAC has been dedicated to the educational development of high school students.  In the last ten years, we have awarded scholarships totaling over $160,000 to graduating high school seniors.

In order for a student to be eligible, he or she must be enrolled in a high school in a “604” or “608” South Suburban zip code. The student must also be a graduating senior, a person of color, and have a minimum of a 2.75-grade point average on a 4.0 scale (3.75-grade point average on a 5.0 scale).
