GRANT APPLICATIONS OPEN AND ARE DUE APRIL 10

Thanks to our generous donors who support campaigns like Founders' Day, we are able to fund scholarships and need-based educational grants that help our sisters pay tuition and reduce their student debt. 

These scholarships and grants are awarded to collegiate and alumnae sisters based on criteria including academic achievement and service to their chapter and community.

PHI SIGMA SIGMA SUPPORTS SCHOOL AND COLLEGE READINESS AT JAMES MADISON UNIVERSITY
Phi Sigma Sigma recognized a need for school supplies in the local community surrounding our newest chapter, and hosted a backpack build as part of the colonization events. Our newest chapter, Iota Chi Chapter at James Madison University which colonized with 188 new Phi Sigs in October, participated in a backpack build that will provide backpacks full of supplies for 500 students in a local elementary school.
We want to hear what your chapter is doing to support our philanthropic cause of school and college readiness. Send details (and photos!) to foundation@phisigmasigma.org .

PHI SIG FOUNDATION LIVES OUR TWIN IDEALS
When disasters strike, Phi Sigs answer. Phi Sigs from coast to coast contributed to the Foundation's Twin Ideals fund this fall to help alleviate the world's pain. The Twin Ideals funds support the Kids in Need Foundation's Second Responder program, which will rebuild schools devastated by the hurricanes in Texas, Florida and elsewhere, provide school supplies to kids who lost everything, and help teachers re-stock their classrooms. Thanks to everyone who contributed to those in need.
