The Bryan A. Collins Memorial Scholarship Program awards $2,500.00 scholarship grants to outstanding college students at Tennessee State University who demonstrate excellence in pursuit of their college degrees.   

Students selected for this scholarship must embody the values embraced by the late Bryan A. Collins — great with people, great at academics and great in extra-curricular leadership activities.

Because of Bryan’s love of his fraternity, first preference will be given to Kappa Alpha Psi members who meet the eligibility criteria prior to extending scholarship consideration to the broader Tennessee State student body.

Any Tennessee State University student meeting the eligibility criteria is encouraged to apply.
