Grants and Scholarships for Speakers
Many fraternities and sororities have educational foundations which are exempt from federal income taxes and which may accept tax deductible gifts under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The grants and scholarships they award are intended to promote intellectual interest or achievement and are concentrated in qualified educational and literary programs associated predominantly with college and university students.
The Foundation provides funding for scholarships and leadership training, in addition to providing support for qualified projects or educational programs. As a member of your fraternity or sorority, you may qualify for grants and/or scholarships through your educational foundation to pay for Greek University programs for your chapter, your council, or your campus community.
The first step is to apply for these grants/scholarships on your educational foundation website. We have assembled a list of organizations (and active links) that have an application on their website, but even if your organization is not listed below, feel free to contact your organization’s educational foundation to find out the process in accessing these funds for educational programming.
