Scholarship

Sigma Psi prides ourselves on our dedication to scholarship focusing on intellectual development and professional development along with academic performance. Sisters are also members of numerous honors societies including Gamma Sigma Alpha, Tau Beta Pi, Mortar Board Society, and Psi Chi. Our sisters not only participate in these honor societies, but also serve as executive board members within these organizations.

Our chapter's faculty adviser is Jennifer DeSantis from the ESS office, who is available to assist sisters with any topic of an academic nature. She hosts a time management workshop with new members and is heavily involved in our scholarship program.

 

The Emerald Program

The Emerald Program is a mentorship and program that introduces our new members to scholarship within Sigma Psi. New Members are paired with an older member by major, career, path or professional development goals. They work together to help the new member understand the Daffodil Program and how the chapter experience can help enhance the new member's academic goals.

The Daffodil Program

The Daffodil program starts with Scholarship Points. Sisters earn scholarship points by doing the academic things they need to do to succeed at CWRU. This includes activities such as going to a professors office hours or attending a Sigma Psi study session. Sisters are expected to earn 5 scholarship points a semester.


Daffodil Leaves build upon scholarship points by rewarding sisters for activities that go beyond the minimum needed to be a successful student. Leaves are given for participating in intellectual and career development, along with excellent grades in academic courses.

Scholarship Banquet

Every fall, Sigma Psi hosts a scholarship luncheon with another chapter on campus. This event allows sisters to connect with professors on campus along with other Greek Community members to celebrate scholarship. Sisters have the opportunity to invite professors to our luncheon to thank them for all of their hard work. It also gives members an chance to meet with professors from different departments and professors a chance to learn more about our scholarship. At the event, sisters are recognized for outstanding achievements in their grades, the Daffodil Program, and commitment to intellectual development.
