Greetings from our Scholarship Chair
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated is a historically Black fraternal organization founded in 1922 and is a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
In a time when education for African Americans was difficult to attain, the founders of Sigma Gamma Rho became educators. They believed that the self-respect, knowledge and discipline gained through study would help individuals to recognize their duty and responsibility for their society. Thus, Sigma Gamma Rho was founded on the precept of education and continues to promote and encourage high scholastic attainment.
In that same vein, each year the ladies of Eta Mu Sigma Chapter Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. seek eligible applicants for our academic scholarships. Past recipients have been awarded laptop computers.
In addition to our academic scholarships, we have also invited others to join Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. - Eta Mu Sigma Chapter in our commitment to water safety.
We annually award seven individuals a scholarship of up to $50 for swimming lessons. Through this scholarship, our mission is to change the startling statistics on drowning, by increasing awareness about the importance of learning to swim and encourage water safety education.
