Zeta Chapter – Denny Strouse Scholarship

Skyler Barlup

Zeta 2019/Lock Haven

“In May, I began clinical rotations, which allow me to apply the knowledge instilled in me over the past year. Clinical rotations require me to travel to receive the best experiences possible.

With a scholarship, I can obtain my education at a more affordable cost, as well as focus on learning medicine instead of worrying about the financial burden.”

Psi Chapter Scholarship

Katherine Barry

Psi 2020/James Madison

Lenore Seibel King Scholarship; Beta Xi Chapter Scholarship

Kaitlyn Brady

An Alpha Sigma Tau National Foundation Scholarship helps me make this dream a reality.”

Martha Drouyor Belknap DeCamp Scholarship; Phi Chapter Scholarship

Breanna Dominguez

Phi 2021/Southeastern Louisiana

“It means everything to me to receive a scholarship to put towards my tuition. Since high school, my education has been one of the most important things in my life. I worked very hard throughout high school to earn the scholarships that I did. Even with the scholarships I was granted, I still have costs to pay each semester. Especially after Hurricane Ida devastated my hometown and I was out of work for over a month, I am still trying to catch up on my personal and academic expenses.”
