Sphinx Educational Fund, Inc.


The Sphinx Educational Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by the Delta Tau Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated. SEF originated from the desire by the Brothers of Delta Tau Lambda to have a vehicle that allowed them to raise money that they could in turn give back to the local community and The Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The success of SEF has grown year over year and the organization is continuing to look for new ways to assist the community to the betterment of all.

Here you will find our entire 2021 Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Virtual Celebration hosted by the Sphinx Educational Fund, Inc. We are grateful for the contributions made by our sponsors, donors, scholarship honorees and keynote speaker. Congratulations to our Award of Merit recipient!
