Supplemental Questions
  1. Please read: The mission of the PHA scholarship program is to award scholarships on the basis of merit and financial need to assist with dues. Scholarships are first scored on a merit basis taking into account how well the candidate represents the four Panhellenic Values (Scholarship, Leadership, Sisterhood, and Philanthropy) and demonstrates thoughtful reflection on what they have gained by being a member of a sorority and the PHA community. Money is then allocated on a need basis taking into account the base chapter dues of each individual sorority (not including parlor fees/housing fees). Due to overwhelming need and limited funds, coverage of your full chapter dues is not guaranteed if you win a scholarship. Your need score is calculated by the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid and is not shared with anyone but the PHA VP of Administration and the PHA faculty advisor. All of your personal information input into this form will be kept confidential, however, your answers to the questions below will be read by PHA exec members and the more specific information you choose to share the more likely it will be that a PHA exec member recognizes you. If you are selected to win a scholarship, it will be up to you to provide the requested information to the VP of Administration in a timely manner in order to collect your winnings. If you have won a PHA scholarship in the previous quarter, you are still encouraged to apply but priority will be given to those who have not recently won a scholarship.
