Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of their self-titled foundation. The Mu Sigma Upsilon Foundation was created to empower women educationally and culturally, to aim in enriching the lives of the community. The foundation will focus on three main initiatives: Scholarships, Grants, and MUnited Nations Funds.
The Mu Sigma Upsilon Foundation offers scholarships to the sisters of Mu Sigma Upsilon as well as high-school community leaders to help offset the cost of their college education. Scholarships will be awarded based on financial need, involvement within the community at large, and minimum grade point average requirements for both undergraduate and graduate degree seeking students.
Grants will also be offered to entities of Mu Sigma Upsilon (Undergraduate Chapters, Aretias Graduate Chapters, and Districts) to apply for funds to help offset costs of their on-campus or community programs. These programs must contain educational, women’s issues, cultural or professional development topics
Through the MUnited Nations Funds program, the Mu Sigma Upsilon Foundation provides financial assistance to support different stages for local and international disaster relief operations. The financial assistance funding is derived directly from disaster relief grants and contributions made to the foundation. The types of assistance available are the Alumnae Sister Crisis Fund, Individual Emergency Fund, and Community Recovery Fund.
Join the Mu Sigma Upsilon Foundation on November 19th as they commemorate the 36th anniversary of Mu Sigma Upsilon and the launch of the foundation with their first event, Run Like an Amazon, Virtual 5K race!
