Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Awards 35 Scholarships to Young Men of Color

Scholarship Application 2014

One of the main components of the Fraternity’s 10 Point Agenda for the “I Am My Brother’s Keeper” initiative is to provide $1,000,000 in scholarship opportunities for young men of color.

We are pleased to announce that Phi Beta Sigma is presenting thirty-five $1,000 Educational Awards to collegiate and alumni brothers throughout the organization’s seven regions. We encourage regions, chapters and members to adopt schools, sponsor activities, and find creative ways to offer scholarship opportunities for worthy students.
