Scholarships & Academic Resources

Scholarship is one of the core values of Fraternity & Sorority Life at Michigan State. Every chapter has different GPA requirements that their members must meet each semester. Additionally, nearly every chapter has programs to help assist their members in need of help with their schoolwork.
