Chapter Educational Grant Application

Chapter Educational Grant Funds are accounts within the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation set up to receive gifts and restrict them for the educational benefit of specific chapters. The money can’t be used for any other chapter, or for the general endowment or Fraternity. The local Board of Governors determines how the funds are utilized on the chapter’s behalf.

The Chapter Educational Grant Funds can be used to provide scholarships, academic incentives, grants for Leadership Academy, Presidents Academy, Regional Conferences and Building Men of Character Retreats, national leadership programs, such as the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) or LeaderShape, and other educational programs.

Certain housing projects may qualify for funding provided those projects are educational in nature. Such building projects may include chapter house libraries, study labs/rooms/facilities and computer technology.

All Chapter Educational Grant requests must be made by the Board of Governors chairman or official alumni officer of the chapter.
