Through gifts and donations provided by community partners and members of Phi Phi Omega, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Phi Phi Omega and Bettye Lewis Maye Scholarships in 2016.
Phi Phi Omega Scholarship - $1,000
The Phi Phi Omega Scholarship is designed to recognize leadership, community involvement and excellence in academic achievement. The applicant must be a female resident of North Fulton, an undergraduate student attending an HBCU, and maintain a 2.5 grade point average. The Phi Phi Omega Scholarship is generally available every four years. It is a one year award, renewable annually over a four year period, provided the recipient continues to meet the scholarship criteria.
Bettye Lewis Maye Scholarship - $2,000
As the organizing President, Mrs. Maye was the impetus behind the Alpha Pearls Cotillion, our signature rite-of-passage event for African American high school juniors and seniors. The cotillion continues to be an event of significance throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area, whereby scholarships are provided to many of the participants. In 2006, Phi Phi Omega unanimously agreed to name one of the scholarships, being awarded to a high school senior, the Bettye Lewis Maye Scholarship.
