Gwinnett Pearls of Service along with the Upsilon Alpha Omega Chapter, the Gwinnett Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., is offering the Beauty P. Baldwin scholarship to African-American high school seniors to further their educational opportunities.  It is the chapter’s goal to promote post-secondary education endeavors. The scholarship will be awarded to a Gwinnett County resident who meets the following scholarship qualifications.

The Upsilon Alpha Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., was chartered in Gwinnett County on January 29, 1994 with thirty members.  Since that time progress has been steady.  One of the first challenges that we took on was to establish a scholarship for young women in Gwinnett County.  The Scholarship was named in honor of one of our chartering members, Mrs. Beauty P. Baldwin, who is also co-founder in initiating the Gwinnett Chapter.  Thus far, we have awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to college bound freshman.

Qualifications:

  •                 Of African-American descent
  •                 Must already be accepted to an accredited four-year college or university
  •                 Must possess leadership potential and discernable good character
  •                 Must demonstrate superior scholastic achievement (minimum 3.0 GPA)

THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED FOR THE 2017 BPB SCHOLARSHIP.
