Greek system supports scholarships

COAST CITIES — San Diego Alumnae Panhellenic, an organization composed of alumnae from various college sororities, is offering five $800 merit scholarships. Applicants need to be graduating San Diego County high school women who in the 2009-2010 school year will attend a four-year university or college that maintains National Panhellenic Council groups on campus. All applications must be received by April 1.
“We are looking for smart, well-rounded women who are active in school and their community,” Dusty Reisch, scholarship chair, San Diego Alumnae Panhellenic said. “Participating in sorority recruitment is not mandatory for our scholarship winners; however, since our group is comprised of alumnae from sororities, we are looking for applicants that have a serious interest in becoming a member of the Panhellenic community.”
Outstanding applicants will be women who demonstrate academic excellence as well as community and school involvement. Requirements for the application are a completed application, a letter of recommendation from a counselor or teacher and an official copy of applicant’s high school transcript. Selections will be made at the end of April and interviews will be conducted May 9. Winners will be notified by mail starting May 11 and honored at a San Diego Alumnae Panhellenic’s luncheon June 6.
San Diego Alumnae Panhellenic was founded in 1928 and is a chapter of the National Panhellenic Conference. The organization is composed of alumnae from women’s Greek letter social fraternities and promotes sorority life to high school and collegiate women through its mission of values, education, leadership, friendship, cooperation and citizenship. SDAP awards scholarships to high school women at the end of each school year.
