Dynamic Urban Opportunities Foundation High School Academic Scholarship

The Delta Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated established the Dynamic Urban Opportunities Foundation, Incorporated (DUOF) in 2007 as an independent nonprofit organization. Dynamic Urban Opportunities Foundation’s mission is to serve the community by enriching and improving the lives of under-represented people living in the region through focused programs in education, economics, the family, health, and the arts and to advance education among members of our diverse communities by providing scholarships, cultural, health, and educational activities, which address and support issues that impact families.
