Toni K. Allen Scholarship Program

The ALA Capital Chapter Foundation has been granting college scholarships since its inception. In 2003 the Scholarship Program was re-named the Toni K. Allen Scholarship Program in memory of one of the founding members of the Foundation. The Scholarship Program is funded by the Capital Chapter Foundation (“the Foundation”) and is managed by the Chapter’s Vice-President of Community Services (“VP”). Eligible D.C. Public School students apply for a $15,000 scholarship, and the Foundation Directors may choose to award additional scholarships in varying amounts based on available funds.
