Educational Assistance Grants

The Alpha Chi Omega Foundation offers individual need-based scholarships each year to collegiate and alumnae members for expenses related to undergraduate or graduate studies. 

Educational assistance grant awards vary each year based on each fund's established criteria and distribution voted on annually by the Board of Trustees. Typical awards range from $500-$1,500. For the 2023-24 academic year, the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation awarded more than $50,000 in educational assistance grants.  

Educational assistance grants are primarily provided through endowed funds based on criteria established by the funds’ donor. Some funds are open to any member of Alpha Chi Omega, where other funds may be limited to members of a particular chapter, from a particular state or region, or those with specific fields of study.
