Need money for college? The Alpha Omicron Pi Foundation has scholarships available for members enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs.
From the AOII Foundation website:
Diamond Jubilee Scholarships
In all, 1,015 scholarships have been granted to deserving graduate and
undergraduate sisters to further their educational goals. These women
exhibit academic excellence as well as dedication to serving the
community and Alpha Omicron Pi.
A prior DJS recipient Hannah B. Jacobs states, "In addition to the
monetary value of the scholarship, there was also the feeling of honor
that accompanied it. It was an unbelievable feeling to receive an award
from an organization that has had such an amazing impact on my life.
Once again AOII proved to me that the ways in which my life is touched
by the fraternity, its members and its programs is never ending."
The AOII Foundation awards scholarships to undergraduate, graduate and
returning alumnae members each year. Scholarships are awarded from the
Diamond Jubilee Endowment as well as several named scholarship funds.
Named scholarships are awarded based on specific criteria established
when the scholarship is first set up and the amount awarded each year
is based on the earnings of the endowment. For a listing of named
scholarships, click here.
There is no separate application for Diamond Jubilee and named scholarships- simply complete one application, and the committee will evaluate the application first for any named scholarships you may qualify for, and then for Diamond Jubilee scholarships.
Current undergraduate students may apply for undergraduate scholarships for their sophomore, junior, or senior year. Graduating seniors or currently enrolled graduate students may apply for graduate scholarships, and active alumnae who have been out of school for some time but plan to return can apply using a special returning alumna application.
Applications are due March 1, 2010.
