Grants to Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority

In the last year alone, the Foundation granted more than $38,000 in support of Sorority programs and directly awarded more than $40,000 in scholarships to both collegiate and alumnae members.

Illuminate

Illuminate is Alpha Sigma Tau’s four-year member development program, offering personal and professional growth for college women. Illuminate equips each participant with the proven leadership skills she needs to become the woman she aspires to be. Peer-driven and grounded in real life, Illuminate is a competency-based women’s leadership development program developed from intense research focused on successful women leaders in a variety of professions.

Thanks to Foundation support, more than 80% of our collegiate members will experience this life-changing program in 2016.

Not Anymore

Alpha Sigma Tau knows that one sexual assault is one too many.

Do you know that more than a third of female college seniors report that since starting college, they had experienced some kind of nonconsensual sexual contact? Or that 43% of college women who date report having experienced violent or abusive dating behaviors at some point in their lives?

Not Anymore is an engaging online program designed to educate members on sexual assault and relationship violence. It uses honest and compelling video tutorials to educate members and volunteers about consent, sexual assault, bystander intervention, and healthy relationships. The videos teach lessons that are drawn from the real world; they are honest, down-to-earth, and directly apply to the world of today’s college women.

GreekLifeEdu

GreekLifeEdu is an engaging online program that offers new members objective, science-based courses addressing the critical issues of alcohol awareness, sexual assault, and hazing.
Leveraging the latest research and trends, and incorporating multiple evidence-based learning theories, GreekLifeEdu provides simple strategies to help students achieve behavior-change objectives, teach students to practice safe decision-making, and empower students to make well-informed decisions.

Convention and Officer Academy

Each year, more than 350 collegiate members participate in leadership development programs at Convention and Officer Academy.

Each program equips participants with the proven skills needed for successful Sorority leadership and – more than that – instills the tools to be successful in life. Past participants have found these programs to be a pivotal event in the leadership of their chapters, and in their own lives.

Donating money to the Foundation was just one way for me to express my appreciation for the resources, like Illuminate, they provide Alpha Sigma Taus that help us grow as individuals.
