Berkeley’s Scholarship Database:
The UC Berkeley Interfraternity Council Leadership Recognition Scholarship was established last semester with IFC funds. The amount of the scholarship is $500 per award given, with 6 possible recipients for a total for $3000 awarded.
Panhellenic Foundation Awards:
The Panhellenic Scholarship Awards are grants of up to $10,000, made annually to exceptional Greek American students beginning or just embarking upon their university education.
The Awards are offered for two principal purposes:
* To recognize students of high scholastic achievement
* To provide support for those students in financial need
Awards are available to all U.S. high school graduates and university students* of Hellenic descent. Applicants’ scholastic records are reviewed and constitute the basis for selection and granting the Award, while also considering their financial need. Scholarships are awarded regardless of other scholarships the applicant may have won from other institutions.
National Panhellenic Conference Foundation:
Once again, the National Panhellenic Conference Foundation is offering scholarships for outstanding Panhellenic women:
The Alpha Phi/Betty Mullins Jones Scholarship was established by the Alpha Phi Foundation to honor Betty Mullins Jones’ commitment to the National Panhellenic Conference. It is awarded annually to a collegiate Panhellenic woman who has worked to further her fraternal community’s reputation on her campus and who embodies the values of sisterhood, philanthropy and scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a woman who makes a difference in sorority life by serving on her college Panhellenic.
The National Panhellenic Conference Foundation is pleased to offer the Elizabeth Ahlemeyer Quick/Gamma Phi Beta Scholarship. Established to honor Betty Quick’s long and devoted service to both NPC and Gamma Phi Beta, this $2,000 scholarship is awarded each year to a collegiate member in good standing of one of the NPC member groups. The recipient must be nominated by her College Panhellenic and shall have displayed outstanding service to her local college Panhellenic, hold a minimum 3.0 grade point average, and have been accepted for enrollment as a full-time junior or senior for the 2007-2008 academic year.
SAGE Scholar Program:
All full-time University of California, Berkeley undergraduate students — with the exception of seniors graduating this academic year — can apply to the SAGE Scholars Program if they:
* qualify for need-based financial aid
* must be Pell Grant Recipient
* maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA
* have leadership potential
After submission of the application, candidates may be invited for an interview.
After acceptance, SAGE endeavors to match internship opportunities to the student’s career focus. Although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to make a match, we do make every effort to introduce students to companies and organizations related to their interests and to get them an interview. Depending on financial aid status, students who qualify will receive tuition awards in addition to competitive internship wages. The hiring company will ultimately make the final decision of the internship placement through their interview process.
In addition to internships, all SAGE Scholars attend a 2-unit Haas School of Business sponsored professional development course, taught by business professionals and campus faculty, that covers topics such as business ethics, workforce diversity, business writing, presentation and leadership skills. SAGE Scholars also work with professional coaches to learn strategies for staying focused on goals, managing time, and recognizing their strengths.
The Mary Lousie Roller Panhellenic Scholarship:
The Mary Lousie Roller Panhellenic Scholarship is an annual award of $1,000 awarded to an undergraduate woman who plans to attend graduate school the following fall.
Named for Mary Louise Roller, this scholarship is funded by a grant from Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity in honor of Mrs. Roller’s 33 year tenure on AOPi’s Panhellenic Delegation. The nominee must have displayed outstanding service to her local college Panhellenic during her undergraduate year. Each College Panhellenic may nominate one candidate per year.
Central Orange County Alumnae Panhellenic:
Sororities strive to make membership as affordable as possible. Many sorority women hold jobs, receive financial aid or earn scholarships. There are also programs and scholarships for those who need assistance with membership. COCAP offers financial assistance in the form of scholarships to both graduating high school seniors who will attend a university with NPC organizations on campus and to current sorority women attending Chapman University in Orange, California. Our annual Athena Benefit Luncheon raises our funds for scholarships. Scholarship hopefuls should submit an application in accordance with the requirements on each of the scholarship pages. Candidates will be selected for personal interviews and then scholarships are presented in the fall at our Athena Benefit Luncheon.
Riverside Alumnae Panhellenic Association:
RAPA has provided 194 local young ladies with scholarships totaling more than $323,946 from the proceeds of our annual Home Tour fundraiser. Each scholarship is given in remembrance of a member of Riverside Panhellenic and awarded at a special meeting each May. Recipients who then pledge a NPC sorority have their initiation fee paid for by RAPA too! Our scholarship is NOT solely need-based, we look at all high school activities, grades and accomplishments.
This scholarship is open only to graduating female seniors from Riverside, Alvord, Jurupa or Moreno Valley school districts, or a private high school in the Riverside area, with an overall high school GPA of at least 3.5, who are going to a four-year college/university where NPC sororities are represented.
