ΓΗ Scholarship Information
The Gamma Eta Scholarship Fund has been created to provide scholarships for members of the Gamma Eta Chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma. This endowed scholarship fund will be administered by the Alpha Chi Sigma Educational Foundation. The award for 2013 will be $2000. It is expected that the amount will increase as additional donations are made to the fund. The 2012 Gamma Eta Scholarship was awarded to Catherine Higgins.
The selection committee, which consists of three Professional members, will solicit applications from the members of Gamma Eta Chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma at the end of March each year. Only those members who were initiated prior to the beginning of the current calendar year will be eligible. The recipient must be a student at Marshall University for at least one term after the award is made. Both undergraduate and graduate students shall be eligible. Students who were initiated at other chapters but who have become active in Gamma Eta Chapter shall also be eligible.

1. active participation in the activities of Gamma Eta Chapter and Alpha Chi Sigma as a whole and how well the applicant lives up to the three objects of the Fraternity
2. academic record
3. financial need
