The Scholarship Fund was founded by several alumni of the Alpha Eta chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi. The goal of the Alpha Kappa Psi Scholarship Fund is to award scholarships to students who attend the Carlson School of Management that have strong academic records and leadership experience. Since 1988, the Scholarship Fund has awarded over $2,500,000 in scholarships to 350 recipients.  For the 2021/22 academic year, we awarded over $250,000 to 11 incoming freshmen and 28 upperclassmen.


The Alpha Kappa Psi Scholarship Fund will award several scholarships to students attending the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, including the following named scholarships:


  • Thomas E. Burnett, Jr.

  • Class of '74-'75 

  • Jim Hays 

  • Bruce Hendry 

  • Philip Smaby 

  • Leigh Lonson 

  • Wallace & Ruth Dahl 

  • Bryan Fitterer

  • Martin & Lois Martin 

  • Martin V. Chorzempa

  • Donald Moberg

  • Enterprise Education 


You do not have to be a member of Alpha Kappa Psi to qualify for these scholarships. Alpha Kappa Psi members will not be given preferential treatment for these scholarships.


Financial need will be taken into account for some but not all scholarships. We request FAFSA information so applicants may be considered for all scholarships. 


Certain Alpha Kappa Psi scholarships include paid housing, therefore a condition of accepting those scholarships is a requirement to live at the Alpha Kappa Psi house with the other scholarship recipients, if space is available. It is highly encouraged that you tour the house, please see the 'Our House' page for more details.
