St. Elmo Foundation Grants

St. Elmo Foundation grants have a strong bias toward grants that benefit the National Fraternity, an entire chapter, or, at minimum, a broad cross-section of a chapter, rather than one individual.

  • Applicants for St. Elmo Foundation Grants must complete a written proposal that details the need for grant funds and the purpose for which the funds will be used.
  • Proposals should be addressed to Donald Beeson at dbeeson@deltaphi.org
  • There is no specific deadline for St. Elmo Foundation grants; however, they will be considered by the Foundation Board during their biannual meetings in May and November.

 

Honors Fees (Phi Beta Kappa and other Academic Honor Societies)

  • Any member earning membership in the academic honor societies may have their membership fee reimbursed by the Foundation.
  • There is no specific deadline for Honors Fees Reimbursements; however, they will be considered by the Foundation Board during their biannual meetings in May and November.
