Alpha Chi Omega Foundation member assistance grants are for collegiate and alumnae members who are facing financial difficulty due to changing life circumstances. Grant amounts vary each year depending on investment returns. These grants are typically reserved for members facing extreme financial emergency in meeting their basic needs of life such as food, shelter, medical expenses, etc. and cannot be used to pay collegiate dues and fees associated with Alpha Chi Omega membership.
Applications may be made by another person on behalf of a member, or by the member herself. The names of those applying for and receiving member assistance grants are held in confidence. The member assistance grants committee reviews all requests for assistance and makes determination for the awarding of grants, based on budgets and criteria adopted by the Foundation Board of Trustees.
