General Scholarships and Fellowships
Each year, the Phi Gamma Delta Educational Foundation receives gifts from Brothers who wish to help their undergraduate and graduate Brothers with educational pursuits.

Scholarships and fellowships generally are $1,000 each and are awarded on the basis of scholarship, leadership, citizenship and need for financial assistance.

All awards have requirements that must be met for eligibility.
