Chapter & Individual Grants

College and alumnae chapters and individual Thetas are eligible to apply for Theta Foundation grants for non-degree educational, leadership, and service-learning opportunities. Applications are available year-round and grants are awarded on a quarterly schedule throughout the fiscal year (July 1-June 30).

Due to IRS regulations, as a charitable, tax-deductible organization, Theta Foundation cannot grant any funding solely for Theta-specific benefit, including membership dues.
