Caren T. Allen Sharpe Scholarship Scoop

​Who is Caren T. Allen Sharpe?

Caren Theresa Allen Sharpe was born in New York City on June 16, 1949. She attended New York City public schools, graduating from George Washington High School in Washington Heights. She received her Bachelor's degree from St. Augustine's College in North Carolina and her Master's degree from Montclair State University in New Jersey. She was a lifelong, active member of St. Luke's Episcopal Church on Convent Avenue in Hamilton Heights and deeply involved in her community and neighborhood. 

As a retired educator since 2013 from the New York City prison system, several business schools and colleges, and the New York City public school system, she realized the challenge many of her former students and community members faced in lacking the financial resources to pursue higher education opportunities. In her continuous service to the community, she began compiling lists of scholarships to share with church members, neighbors, and members of the New York Alumnae Chapter. 

In recognition of Caren Theresa Allen Sharpe's contribution to her community, membership in Delta Sigma Theta Incorporated for almost 40 years, and membership in NYAC since 1985, NYAC has established a memorial Scholarship Page for families to apply for scholarships to support family members in reaching their goals of higher education.
