Welcome Brothers and friends to the official website of the Scholarship and Educational Foundation of Alpha Alpha Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

Alpha Alpha Lambda is seated in the great City of Newark, New Jersey. A city that is undergoing an impressive and remarkable renaissance.  The Men of Alpha Alpha Lambda have been a part of this strategic effort through its commitment to service and excellence.

This contest fulfills that mission in helping young men gain the power and confidence to express themselves in a manner befitting our future leaders.
