The Phi Delta Gamma Graduate Scholarship

Not available for the 2022-23 Academic Year


Phi Delta Gamma, a national graduate fraternity founded in 1922, actively supports graduate education in all fields of study. Members have earned or are pursuing advanced degrees and represent high standards in scholarship, professionalism, and service. Phi Delta Gamma is a unique interdisciplinary organization, committed to the advancement of graduate education.


The Beta Chapter of Phi Delta Gamma provides an annual award, known as the Phi Delta Gamma Scholarship, to a graduate student who is a candidate for an advanced degree in any school of the George Washington University and who shows scholarship, financial need, and promise.

Although scholarship recipients are determined by the end of the Spring Semester, scholarship monies are only available for the following Fall Semester. Scholarships are awarded for GW tuition purposes. No cash grants are given. Awards are stackable* and vary from $1,000 - $2,000. (Note: fees are not covered by these awards and Summer Sessions are not covered by these awards.)
