Steps to Follow in Establishing a Named Fellowship/Scholarship/Award
Outstanding Phi Upsilon Omicron members have an ongoing need for more financial aid to pursue undergraduate or graduate studies.
The Phi Upsilon Omicron Educational Foundation invites you to assist these members by establishing a Fellowship, Scholarship, or Award in your own name or in honor of someone. Any individual, group, or chapter may start a new fund to honor someone such as an outstanding member, faculty person, or alumni. The following contributions are required to start a new fund: (*See footnote 1)
These amounts supply a minimal scholarship/fellowship/award which can be increased through additional gifts. All contributions are tax deductible.
Now that you have the general idea, here are some steps to follow:
Phi Upsilon Omicron Educational Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the Candle Society for such gifts. Members who choose to remember Phi U in their will, or other planned gift, will become members of this Society and leave a true legacy of their Phi U experience. Please take a moment to review the Phi Upsilon Omicron Educational Foundation Candle Society Brochure, and Candle Society article for additional information.
In conclusion, starting a new fund is a fairly simple procedure. Consider this means of honoring someone, perpetuating the high ideals of our honor society, and providing financial aid to a deserving Phi U member. For more information contact:
