Who We Are
Alpha Association of Colorado was chartered as an alumni organization in 1993 by the National Phi Beta Kappa Society in Washington, D.C. Since our founding, we have established a competitive scholarship program to help Colorado PBK initiates as they continue their studies in graduate school. The purpose of these scholarships is to encourage the pursuit of knowledge and academic excellence. For more information on PBK Associations, their differences from Chapters, as well as a list of both within Colorado, please read PBK in Colorado.
