Thirty percent of membership dues go toward our yearly scholarships. Each member will receive an application for scholarship. Applications are reviewed yearly by our scholarship committee and decisions of awards will be made by August 15th of each year. Notifications will be sent to the recipients and their respective schools. A list of recipients will be published in our quarterly newsletter and will always be available upon request. We will also mail a letter to those applicants who were not selected, informing them of our decisions, but encouraging them to apply the next year if they are continuing their educations.
Scholarships are based on 25% financial needs, 25% academic achievements, and 50% essay submission. A 500-600 word essay on “What makes a person great” will be a required part of the application process and will be a major factor in the selection of recipients.
Omicron Psi Silver members may only apply once for a scholarship. Omicron Psi Gold members may apply as many years as they continue their education. Full time status vs part time status is not a considering factor.
