    James Stemler Scholarship


    At their annual meeting in June 2008, the National Council of Alpha Lambda Delta passed a resolution honoring retiring National President Dr. James G. Stemler by establishing ten new study abroad scholarships in his name. The number of scholarships has now been increased to twenty. The James G. Stemler Study Abroad Scholarships will take the form of ten $1,000 awards and ten $2,000 awards to offset the expense of studies abroad for eligible members of Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society for First-Year Students.

    The first male president of the Society, Dr. Stemler served the National Council of ALD for more than 14 years; he held the office of Vice President for Chapter Relations and Expansion, and completed his sixth year as National President in 2009. In addition to his dedicated service on the Council, Dr. Stemler has been an active chapter advisor for the chapter at the University of Portland – and has been a very vocal proponent and promoter of studies abroad.

    The Council recognizes that the world is becoming less a collection of independent peoples and more a global community of world citizens – and there is an immediate need for American students to experience life beyond the United States, and studies abroad are one of the ways in which our colleges and universities are accomplishing that goal. With this in mind, Alpha Lambda Delta is committed to helping its membership develop a more global view of the world.


  • Students initiated into ALD prior to January 1, 2016
  • Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher
  • Student’s study abroad program must be taken through a US-based institution. Funds will not be sent to international institutions
  • Student’s study abroad program must take place in the Summer 2016 – Spring 2017 academic year
