Jabberwock

Pittsburgh Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is pleased to announce our 2021-2022  Jabberwock Scholarship Program.

The Jabberwock is a fundraising activity for scholarships and other public service programs that began as a  unique means of raising scholarship funds. The word Jabberwock, copyrighted by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority,  Inc., in 1947 was taken from Lewis Carroll’s tale, Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland. The Jabberwock is a mythical character who called together the members of his kingdom to put on a gala event.

Young ladies in 11th -12th grade are eligible participants. They must demonstrate a commitment to a successful future, active interest and involvement in public service and community related activities. Activities and workshops are planned for participants that will encourage growth and confidence in areas of life skills, career planning and community service to name a few. The Jabberwock will be held Sunday, March 27, 2022.
