Founders’ Award

For outstanding performance in all categories, this prestigious award is presented to the Fraternity of Alpha Kappa Lambda’s most outstanding chapter in all areas of performance. Consideration of recruitment performance, financial management, campus leadership, risk management, scholarship, and community service are but a few of the areas examined in determining the recipient of AKL’s highest award.

  • Clarence E. Brehm Leadership Award
    • Created in 1982 in honor of Clarence E. Brehm (Iota ’32). This award is presented to the individual collegiate member who has illustrated superior abilities in leadership. This award is based both on performance within the Fraternity, and participation in campus activities.
  • Holmes Award
