       Delaware State Chapter, P.E.O.

     Welcome to the website of Delaware State Chapter, P.E.O.   


P.E.O. is a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans, and stewardship of Cottey College; and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.


Friendship is the cornerstone of P.E.O. – it is the legacy left by our Founders

and it thrives in our unique Sisterhood. P.E.O. exists to be a source of encouragement and support for women to realize their potential in whatever worthwhile endeavor they choose.


The P.E.O. Sisterhood is passionate about its mission: promoting educational opportunities for women. Our sisterhood proudly makes a difference in

women's lives with six philanthropies that include ownership of a women's college, Cottey College, and five programs that provide higher educational assistance:


P.E.O. Educational Loan Fund (established 1907)
P.E.O. International Peace Scholarship Fund (established 1949)
P.E.O. Program for Continuing Education (established 1973)
P.E.O. Scholar Awards (established 1991)
P.E.O. STAR Scholarship (established 2009)
P.E.O. Foundation (established 1869)
Cottey College (established 1884)
