Grants to Individual Members

Endowments and annual gifts allow the Foundation to award undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships to members, as well as provide financial assistance to collegians through Sisters Helping Sisters: A Need-Based Scholarship Program and to members in crisis through Anchor Grants.

Anchor Grants

As an effort to assist members in their times of trouble, Delta Gamma Foundation Anchor Grants were established in 1996. Anchor Grants assist Delta Gamma sisters who find themselves in extreme financial need created by job loss, health crisis, natural disaster, or other unexpected life circumstances. Anchor Grants are awarded throughout the year, as funds are available.
