Start a Fund

Since our establishment in 1984, the Tri Sigma Foundation has awarded more than $500,000 dollars to Tri Sigma collegians and alumnae pursuing their educational dreams. While the Foundation is able to award between 20-40 scholarships each year, more than half of the Tri Sigmas who apply are unable to receive one. Your contribution can help the Tri Sigma Foundation scholarship program grow to meet the educational needs of all of our sisters.

Information about endowing a scholarship fund:

  • A scholarship can be established with a gift of $25,000, payable over a five-year period.
  • A scholarship can be established by an individual donor, family, chapter, or group.
  • The donor can choose to keep the scholarship open to all Tri Sigma applicants or designate the scholarship for specific chapters, fields of study, and undergraduate or graduate students.
  • Scholarship assets are professionally invested and managed under the supervision of the Tri Sigma Foundation Board of Directors.
