In light of ongoing uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to promote a Beta experience that is affordable to all, the Beta Foundation is offering more than $100,000 in need-based relief scholarships for its members.
Every chapter will receive $1,000 to distribute to the member(s), new or initiated, most in need of financial assistance for tuition-related expenses.
No formal application is necessary to receive the grant from the Beta Foundation. Instead, chapters should assemble a selection committee and review applications directly. After selecting 1-4 members to receive scholarship funds, a representative should submit award winners’ names, addresses and contact information using the survey below.
Note: Each chapter may decide the number of scholarships awarded and individual scholarship amounts. However, the amounts must be between $250 and $1,000 per person and may not exceed the $1,000 grant in total. See the Selection Guidance resource below for helpful tips to consider when trying to weigh the greatest need.
