To promote scholastic achievement and to help Chi Phi Brothers be better men, the Chi Phi Educational Trust awards approximately $100,000 in academic and member development scholarships on a yearly basis. During the 2020-2021 fiscal year, fifty-three Chi Phi Brothers received scholarships thanks to the generous financial support provided by Alumni, parents, and friends. These merit-based academic scholarships honor those who both work hard to achieve academic success and serve their Chapter. Brothers must be in good standing with the Fraternity to be eligible.
The application deadline for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 was April 15, 2022. The scholarship application for Fiscal Year 2022-2023 will open in early January 2023.
Applications for all scholarships are evaluated by a volunteer panel made up of Chi Phi Alumni. Applications are scored on five categories:
- Grade Point Average
- Leadership and Involvement (Chi Phi, Campus, and Community)
- Community Service & Philanthropy
- Educational/Professional Achievements
- Cover Letter
- Letter of Recommendation
Applying for an Academic Scholarship
Once after the application is submitted, the Scholarship Review Committee will match qualified applicants to all available scholarships for which they are eligible. Most scholarships award amounts range between $1,000 and $2,700 and all are for one academic year.
Please note that Chi Phi Brothers can be awarded a lifetime maximum of $10,000 in scholarships by the Educational Trust. This does not include any scholarships awarded directly from a Chapter Excellence Fund.

Alumni, friends, Chapters, Alumni Associations and Alumni Clubs can endow and name a scholarship with a gift of $25,000 or more. To learn more about creating a named scholarship that will recognize and reward students in perpetuity, contact Executive Director Laura Landry at 404-231-1824.
“I joined Chi Phi because of its brotherhood, its leaders, and its family. Throughout the years the support of this family has allowed me to find success, even now as I am in medical school. The financial burden of this career path is heavy, so know that as a recipient of this scholarship you have made a profound impact on my life.”
“I cannot express just how thankful I am to be the recipient of an Educational Trust scholarship! It shows that I made one of the best decisions of my life to join Chi Phi because people like you notice Brothers like myself and show us that we are doing good and making people proud.”
“I want to express my sincere appreciation for choosing me to be a recipient of an Educational Trust scholarship. This scholarship will help me focus more time on school and continue to better my grades. It will also encourage me to work harder, so I can give back to other Brothers who are in need of support.”
