Please note the following message from the Educational Foundation:
Full-time Seniors and Juniors with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale, or the equivalent where a different grading system is used, may borrow up to $3,500. When funds permit, the committee may consider exceptions to the 2.8 GPA requirement if:
- The applicant demonstrates an extraordinary or emergent need for financial assistance
- The applicant has demonstrated steady academic improvement and has achieved a 2.8 GPA or better in each of his last two semesters
On a matching basis, the Foundation will reimburse any Resident Chapter meeting certain requirements. Cost must be directly associated with the establishment or improvement of a Chapter’s library facilities. Upon proper documentation, the Chapter can apply for reimbursement up to $500 per calendar year.
When a Chapter’s grade point average (GPA) exceeds the All Men’s GPA for an academic year, the college library will be presented with a check for $100; for two consecutive years, a check for $200; for three or more consecutive years, a check for $300.
On an annual basis, up to $500 will be paid to those Resident Chapters that program and operate plans of assistance in education to their communities. Payment is made for expenses incurred by the Chapter after proper certification is made to the Foundation by the National Office.
The Educational Foundation will pay for speakers sponsored by the Chapter to address educational issues on the college campus. There is a $500 annual limit per Chapter. For information on this program, contact the Educational Foundation Office.
Honor Society Grants
Initiation fees in college educational honor societies will be awarded. A copy of proof of payment must be submitted to the Educational Foundation office, along with documentation from the honor society verifying initiation. Postulants can receive reimbursement for Honor Society Dues, and the reimbursement can be used to offset payment on the individual’s National Initiation Fee.
