Our members are students before they become Phi Psis, after all, and we make success in school a priority. In addition to recognizing our top scholars with awards at national conventions, our Foundation gives thousands of dollars to deserving Phi Psis each year in the form of national and chapter scholarships. Any member can apply for our national scholarships, and each chapter’s alumni corporation is responsible for ensuring that money from the Chapter Scholarship Fund is properly awarded to undergraduates who lead the campus in grades and service.
We also realize that collegiate life can be difficult. Between juggling social, academic and fraternal schedules, students may find themselves underachieving from time to time. We encourage the use of our host institutions’ tutoring and student life offices, and many chapters have strict guidelines designed to get their brothers the help they need to succeed.
Phi Psis strive to better themselves in all areas of life, and as university students they can find the assistance and structure they need to accomplish their goals.
