Establishing a Scholarship

Individuals and chapters may establish designated scholarships. Such scholarships may be restricted to a general field of study or for members of a specific chapter. A scholarship is eligible to distribute awards when the donation balance in the fund reaches $10,000.

To establish a scholarship:

Send a letter indicating the intent to create a scholarship to the National Foundation Executive Director.

A letter of agreement will be sent to the individual/chapter outlining the requirements:

  • a contribution to establish the scholarship
  • a minimum balance of $10,000 within a ten (10) year period
  • contributions, interest and expenses will be credited to the fund
  • when interest over expenses generates at least $250, the scholarship can be awarded

For additional information on making gifts of property, securities, life insurance, acknowledging the Alpha Sigma Tau National Foundation, Inc. in your will, endowing a scholarship or employer donation matching, please contact the Foundation.

I am honored and grateful to have been awarded a scholarship from the Alpha Sigma Tau National Foundation. The generosity of the Foundation and its donors have made a critical difference in my ability to afford higher education. Scholarships not only provide financial support, but encourage women to give back to their communities and the Sorority. Your generous gift to the scholarship fund promotes the development, scholarship, and leadership of exceptional women.
