The Foundation is responsible for granting financial aid and scholarships to recognize and encourage academic achievement and leadership development among the active members and candidates for membership of the Chapter.

The number and amount of each grant may vary, depending on the funds available to the Foundation from the various donations made to the Annual Fund.

The following are examples of the types of grants the Foundation may disburse:

  • Academic grants to recognize outstanding scholastic achievement.
  • Grants to outstanding members of the pledge class upon their initiation to the Chapter.
  • Leadership grants to elected Chapter officers, e.g., consul and quaestor.
