Each year, Panhellenic offers a variety of scholarships open to Auburn University sorority women. All five scholarships are worth $1,000 each and can be applied for through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunities Manager (AUSOM). In order to apply, applicants must complete the general scholarship application then apply for each scholarship individually. After the application is complete, applicants must then email their resume to the Director of Scholarship (email@example.com) and the Panhellenic Administrative Vice President (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The five scholarships offered are the Deborah Lee Shaw Scholarship, The Katherine Cooper Cater Student Affairs Endowed Scholarship, the Panhellenic Council Study Abroad Endowed Scholarship, the Panhellenic Endowed Scholarship, and the new Jill Moore Martin Endowed Scholarship.
The Deborah Lee Shaw Scholarship is presented to the woman who shows the greatest involvement and leadership within her sorority and the Panhellenic community. The requirements are the applicant must be an active member in her sorority and have a minimum 3.0 GPA. Applicants also must write a 200-500 word essay in addition to the general application filled out through AUSOM.
The Katherine Cooper Cater Student Affairs Endowed Scholarship is based on the recipient’s grade point average, display of leadership and involvement in both sorority and campus activities. She must also have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and be an active member in her sorority.
The Panhellenic Study Abroad Endowed Scholarship will be given to a sorority member who has a GPA above the all-sorority average, which is a 3.32. It will provide for a student participating in an Auburn University Study Abroad program. Special consideration will be given to women who can demonstrate committed involvement in their sorority or the Auburn Panhellenic community. An interviewee will need to describe how this experience can help her achieve academically as well as how the experience can benefit her in her chosen career.
The Panhellenic Endowed Scholarship is presented based on the recipient’s financial need, involvement in both sorority and campus activities and grade point average. The requirements are that applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and they must send a brief explanation of their financial situation and a list of any financial aid or scholarships they are currently receiving.
The Jill Moore Martin Endowed Scholarship is a new scholarship to the Panhellenic community and is the first one to be based solely on financial need. While it may be taken into consideration, there is no minimum GPA listed. The requirements are that applicants must send a brief explanation of their financial situation, showing why they are deserving of a need-based scholarship and a list of any financial aid or scholarships they are currently receiving.
