Apply for Scholarships

Applications for Pi Beta Phi scholarships open November 15 and must be completed by February 15. Scholarships are awarded for the following academic year. 

The application and all supporting materials are submitted through our online system. You only need to complete one application to be considered for all scholarships for which you’re eligible. 

We notify all applicants whether they’ve received an award on or before May 31, and awards are disbursed to colleges and universities after August 15 each year.


To be considered for a scholarship, you should be a collegian or alumnae member in good standing, with a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA (or Canadian equivalent). Individual scholarships may have additional criteria, such as membership in a specific chapter.
