Our History

 The Onward and Upward Empowerment Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization which operates on the pillars of education, community, and benevolence. Our commitment to our community and other parts of the Dallas area is to enhance citizens’ economic, social, and political awareness. 



 The foundation’s primary focus is the Alpha Scholars group, students mentored by brothers of Rho Nu Lambda. To date, the foundation and chapter has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships.  


 We presented our very first Mark Saunders Education Scholarship in the amount of $1000 to Mr. Cameron Dockery, a sophomore at Prairie View A&M University.
