  • Graduating seniors will be eligible for individual scholarships. For example, if a graduating senior earns a 4.0 in his last semester, he will receive $1,000 but will not share in any all-house scholarships.
  • Non-graduating students who do not return to the university will not be eligible for individual or all-house scholarships. If he is not returning due to a hardship, the student can submit circumstances for review under the Dispute Resolution policy.
  • Pledges are eligible to receive individual scholarships and, if eligible for more than one of the shared or all-house scholarships, will receive one additional scholarship of the greater amount. For example, if a pledging brother earns a 4.0 GPA, the house earns first place, and the pledge class earns a 3.5 GPA, then the pledging brother will receive the $1,000 individual scholarship, plus a $500 share of the pledge class scholarship with the $500 amount being the higher amount between the all-house and pledge class scholarships.

Dispute Resolution

The Alpha Iota Educational Fund (AIEF) will be the governing body for delivering and administering this program, and all scholarships will be awarded at its sole discretion. If conflicts or unforeseen circumstances arise, AIEF will review and render a final, un-appealable decision.
