Scholarship Application & Assessment Deadline Feb. 20

Select the applicable competition button below to review the competition and access the application form. Undergraduate members should verify with their chapter advisor that they will be selected as one of their chapter’s nominees before beginning the application process. See section below on being nominated by Feb. 20. Each student application and the corresponding faculty assessment must be received by Feb. 20, 2022.


General Applicant Instructions
Student members applying to any of the three programs must complete the online application. As part of the application form, applicants will upload a paper or other evidence of their scholarship. Depending on the type of submission, applicants may be asked to supply additional documents. Applicants should consult the appropriate competition guidelines above for full details before beginning their application.


Faculty Assessment Process
All three competitions require an official faculty assessment addressing the significance of the submission. It must be submitted by a faculty member in the field represented by the nominee’s paper or project. Nominees must provide their faculty assessor’s contact information as part of the online application so that the assessment form can be automatically emailed to the faculty assessor upon submission of the online application form. However, it is the nominee’s responsibility to get their paper or other work to their faculty assessor for review. The official faculty assessment is also due by Feb. 20, 2022, so please encourage your applicants to submit their applications early enough for their faculty assessors to have time to complete the assessment form. 


Chapter Advisor Nominations Due Feb. 20
Students wishing to apply to the Sledge/Benedict or Gaston/Nolle undergraduate competitions must be nominated by their official chapter advisor for their application to be considered. [The Pryor Fellowship competition (for master’s or doctoral study) does not require a chapter advisor nomination.] Advisors will declare their chapter’s undergraduate nominee(s) by sending an email to scholarships@alphachihonor.org with their college name as the subject line. The body of the email should contain the full name of each nominee followed by the name of the award being sought.


If you have questions about these procedures that your chapter advisor is unable to answer, please call 800-477-4225 or email scholarships@alphachihonor.org.
