Scholarship Program

At the cornerstone of our organization is the Phi Chi Theta Scholarship Program. Since 2003, the Foundation has awarded over $40,000 in scholarships to members who exemplify scholastic achievement, leadership and commitment to the ideals of Phi Chi Theta -- characteristics of a business leader.

At the National and Regional meetings, the Foundation awards scholarships to several Phi Chi Theta Members. This is made possible through a fully-funded endowment and memorial funds that are funded through tax-deductible contributions made to the Foundation by the generosity of its chapters members, friends, family and Corporations.
