One of our founders’ highest ideals was the value of scholarship. The Psi chapter proudly displays many names on the Dean's List every semester.
We have members in many fields of study, including: Biology, Chemistry, Business, Spanish, Psychology, Education, Pre-Medicine, Dental Hygiene, Commucation Disorders, Nursing, Political Science, International Relations, Journalism, Pre-Physical Therapy, Accounting and many more!
In the spring of 2013, the Psi Chapter of Alpha Phi awarded over 43 scholarships, totaling more than $26,000 to help in financing its member's college educations. That is more scholarships than any other greek chapter or student organization on the USD campus!
The Psi Chapter has developed fun ways to encourage our members and reward their scholarly success, including gifts at our scholarship luncheon, peer tutoring, study buddies and special parking spots in the back lot for members with high GPAs.
Scholarship gifts for our members include Coach, Vera Bradley, Bare Minerals makeup, Victoria Secret apparel and gift cards. We have also started a drawing where members who earn A's on tests or papers can enter to receive extra incentives.
