Phi Delta Theta Foundation Awards $245,000 in Scholarships and Fellowships to 240 Students

Annually the Phi Delta Theta Foundation awards many scholarships to both its undergraduate members and alumni who are continuing their graduate studies. For the 2020–21 academic year, the Foundation awarded over $245,000 in scholarships and fellowships to 240 students.

Our members begin their academic journeys to gain an education that will help them build a career. When they join Phi Delta Theta, they open themselves up to a network of alumni who are prepared to help them pursue their career goals and support them financially with scholarships along the way. Every year there are many impressive applications. The recipients chosen showcase Phi Delta Theta’s Cardinal Principles: Friendship, Sound Learning, and Rectitude.

It goes without saying that these efforts are only possible thanks to the donations of our very generous donors. Your gifts are impactful beyond measure and are making a difference in the lives of these young men.
