Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, Rho Delta Zeta Chapter

On behalf of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, Rho Delta Zeta Chapter, a community action-oriented international sorority, I am writing to request your assistance with notifying female high school seniors at Ypsilanti Community High School of the Margrette Ann Taylor (MAT) Scholarship.

Ms. Taylor was a founding member of the Rho Delta Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. Tragically, she passed away on September 6, 2000.
The Margrette Ann Taylor Scholarship was established in her honor in support of the core principles of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated; Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood.

The MAT Scholarship is intended to provide financial assistance to female African American high school seniors in furthering their education.
Rho Delta Zeta will award two scholarships (one to an eligible female student who attends Benton Harbor High School and one to an eligible female student who attends Ypsilanti Community High School).

Each recipient will receive a scholarship award in the amount of $1000.

Going Merry Scholarships

Going Merry called "College Scholarships,” which estimates the grant aid that certain colleges would provide. One of our first partner colleges is the University of Virginia, which is committed to meet students’ full financial need, for both in-state and out-of-state students alike. Of course, such institutional aid would be in addition to whatever funds students win from independent scholarships on Going Merry.
