Frances M. Duvall Scholarship Program

Beta Epsilon Omega began the scholarship program in 1935, and has continued to provide scholarships in the Memphis community for over 80 years. Scholarship awards are based on several criteria, including academics, community service and/or financial need. Annually, we award over $35,000 in scholarships to deserving students. Additionally, in support of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) we award scholarship recipients an additional stipend if they attend an HBCU.

Operation Big Sister was created to address the need in the community “that many girls in deprived areas of the greater Memphis desire to have the opportunity to learn about careers, human interaction, drug abuse, and other topics of concern.” OBS began as a program exclusively for at-risk girls in grades nine through twelve. Currently, a four-week summer session, the program promotes scholarship and volunteerism, focuses on social development, and provides cultural and educational activities for male and female school age-participants.


The Summer Reading Program launched in the summer of 1975 in response to a new program initiative, The Reading Experience. Initially, the goal of the summer program was to design strategies and tactics to improve the reading skills of the targeted audience. It evolved to improving test performance on standardized tests. Over the years, the program has continued to support literacy needs in the community. Currently, the Summer Reading program occurs for one week during the month of June.



TIC began in 1965 as a social development initiative for female teenagers. The objective was to create a vehicle for teenagers to promote personal development, social growth, scholarship and community service. TIC is a mentoring program and their annual calendar aligns with the traditional ten (10) month school calendar year (Aug- May).

TIC applications are accepted in February of each calendar year.
