UIFI Scholarship Application

The Phi Kappa Tau Foundation annually awards two Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) Scholarships which cover tuition for this outstanding inter-greek leadership development program. UIFI is hosted by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). (Application deadline: April 1)

This five-day, intense, hands-on clinic is designed to reach attendees core and assist them in finding their true fraternal calling. Participants are involved in all aspects of the Institute. UIFI is not for individuals who prefer lecture-style leadership experiences. Attendees know and understand the true meaning of belonging to an organization and affecting change not only within their chapter but also on their respective campuses and in their communities.

Participants are able to return to their chapter and teach what was learned and better understand how to be a leader. The program is geared for those individuals who are ready to realize their potential and ready to achieve goals set by themselves, their chapter, and their greek and college/university communities.

Participants reside in a chapter house that becomes “home” for the week. Major sessions are complimented by small group meetings, called chapters. Chapter meetings are designed to help participants explore, define and enhance their leadership skills and identify the timeless principles through which they can define themselves individually and organizationally. Each participant is challenged to develop a personal plan of action and make a commitment to leading his or her organization through the change process. In addition, participants have the opportunity to network and build friendships with numerous other greek community leaders.

UIFI is open to all initiated undergraduates. However, many participants either serve on their campus fraternity council or in a high leadership position within their chapter. For additional programming information on UIFI, including past attendee testimonials, please visit the NIC’s website.
