OMEGA PSI PHI FRATERNITY,INC., CHI TAU CHAPTER
2016 SCHOLARSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT
The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was founded on November 17, 1911 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift were adopted as the four Cardinal Principles and serve as an important guide for the Brothers in supporting community development programs locally, nationally, and internationally. The Scholarship Program promotes academic excellence through tutoring, mentoring, and scholarship awards for students pursuing post-secondary education. Without this support, many students would be unable to accomplish their educational goals and professional careers.
The Chi Tau Orlando Graduate Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., in partnership with The Friendship Foundation, Inc., is pleased to announce the availability of academic scholarships for students who meet the following eligibility requirements:
