Xi Chapter Eleanor Foreman Scholarship
The Xi Chapter Eleanor Foreman Scholarship is a new academic scholarship at the University of Louisville, which was started by the Xi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Xi Chapter chose to name this scholarship after one of their own, Soror Eleanor Foreman. Mrs. Eleanor Foreman, the epitome of a true trailblazer, was known for leading by example. She paved the way for many by being the first Black woman to serve in the following positions: Negotiator for the United States Army Corp of Engineers, Chairman of the Federal Credit Union, sales associate for the Louisville Board of Realtors. Additionally, she served as the president of the following organizations: the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. Louisville section, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Louisville Alumnae Chapter, and Bourgard College of Music and Art. Mrs. Foreman’s actions indicate that she was community service oriented and an agent of change. Learn more about Soror Foreman by listening to her interview with UofL's Oral History Center.
We aim to honor the legacy and life of Soror Foreman through this scholarship. Our ultimate goal is to endow this scholarship to leave a lasting legacy and to financially support an African American female on her college journey while at the University of Louisville. We hope to award our first scholarship recipient at our centennial celebration in 2022. Make your gift today to support the Xi Chapter Eleanor Foreman Scholarship!
