Gamma-Rho Scholarship Program

Our goal is to see that you graduate and that you have all the resources you need along the way. Our programs are as follows:

  • Faculty Advisor – he is here to help guide our members through their 4-5 years here at UA. His focus is: meeting with members to set academic plans, helping members get tutoring support if needed, and counseling members about grad school and/or post-UA careers.
  • Educational Programs – all of members have the opportunity to attend these sessions: Managing Your Time, Setting Effective Goals, and Study Skills.
  • Scholarships – while our National Fraternity via its Endowment Fund offers nearly 50 scholarships per year to scholars-leaders, we also offer 24 scholarships totally $30,000 annually here at our chapter (we do not believe that any chapter at UA offers more).
