Annually we award scholarships to young women who are exemplary members of their sorority and Panhellenic community. All women who will be enrolled in school during the following school year and either live or attend school in the 146_, 145_, or 144_ zip codes are encouraged to apply for this scholarship. Typically we award 1-3 scholarships at our annual Spring Luncheon. This money is awarded directly to the winner upon her enrollment in the school year. It may be used for any school expenses including but not limited to tuition, books, dues, or food.

“…In the last year, I have excelled in a Master’s Program for Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Medaille College. My second year of the program has begun and a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders thanks to the RAP scholarship. My career goal as a future mental health therapist is to utilize my knowledge and experiences to advocate for, and support, those living with mental illnesses in realizing their true potential in life. I am honored and grateful to have received this scholarship from RAP (and the donors who made this possible) for giving me the opportunity to continue my work, thus moving forward in my professional life.”
“I am so grateful to be a recipient of the 2018 Rochester Alumnae Panhellenic Scholarship. I am completing my final semester at the University of Rochester to finish my Bachelor’s degree in Public Health. This scholarship relieves some of the financial pressures of attending college and being involved with Delta Gamma. Receiving this scholarship means I can spend more time on my academics… rather than focusing my time solely on working a job on campus…”
“…This scholarship has given me many opportunities to put myself out there in a positive way and has allowed me to grow. Thank you very much for the support that this scholarship has given me and I promise to get the most out of my last year at college as I can!”
“I was working over 20 hours a week to make the money I needed for school… And, if I wasn’t working, I was worrying about the money I didn’t have…. Money was always holding me back. Thanks to the Rochester Alumnae Panhellenic Scholarship, I know I can be more present in my chapter this school year. My continued enrollment at the University of Rochester can be attributed to your time and generous donations.”
Grace Koester – 2018 Recipient – “I was able to use the scholarship I received from Rochester Alumnae Panhellenic to help with tuition expenses. This allowed me to finish by Bachelors of Science in Advertising and Public Relations from RIT. Because of the experience I gained in Sorority Life and from my education, I am now working as the Coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Rochester Institute of Technology. I am also looking into starting a Masters Degree in Higher Education so that I can continue to help sorority women like myself in the future.”
