The Foundation Chapter is thrilled to announce the 2017/2018 scholarship recipients. More than $250,000 has been awarded to 159 Theta Chi undergraduate and graduate members thanks to the generous support from our donors. Award amounts ranged between $500 and $5,000 to assist with academic expenses for the 2017/2018 school year. Over 250 applications were submitted this year, proving our collegian brothers are in great need of financial support.

We encourage you to view this year’s recipients (PDF). One of their many memorable stories is excerpted here:

I applied for a scholarship from Theta Chi because I'm a first-generation immigrant who has very limited resources and connections. I aim to obtain the most out of my collegiate experience; which is why I’m an active member of three different organizations on campus, while also maintaining a 3.9+ GPA. Along with my extracurricular activities, I’ve been attempting to juggle my responsibilities between two jobs that helps me pay for day-to-day as well as educational expenses. This scholarship is incredibly significant to me because it’s further enabling me to continue to pursue activities and interests I’m passionate about while mitigating the profound stress of education-related financial obligations. For that reason, I’m genuinely grateful and appreciative of not only The Foundation Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity but also the alumni who made it all possible by contributing financially and lending “An Assisting Hand” to brothers like me who are truly in need.
