Iota Alpha, Saginaw Valley State University

It's very significant to me that I witnessed and worked with my chapter to establish the Iota Alpha Chapter Educational Fund and I am its first scholarship recipient. Being the recipient of this scholarship has definitely eased the pains of student debt and allowed me to focus on my studies.

I remember sitting in our chapter meeting when the current Fundraising Chair and Archon spoke about our Chapter Educational Fund – the steps my sisters took to establish this fund required initiative, passion and dedication. Dedication to the fraternity's mission, to providing educational opportunities, and to empowering women within our sisterhood. Their actions and this opportunity exemplify the common mission of perpetuating the advancement of womanhood that all women of Phi Sigma Sigma strive to achieve.

I wouldn't have this scholarship if it wasn't for my sisters’ initiative and the incredible service the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation provides.
