Alpha Phi Foundation



Scholarship Reader

Alpha Phi Foundation awards more than $200,000 in merit- and need-based scholarships each year. We receive hundreds of applications from graduate and undergraduate Alpha Phis across North America and it is a special group of alumnae volunteers who help us evaluate these applications.

Scholarship applications are due on March 1st. Each Scholarship Reader is then assigned approximately 35 applications to read and evaluate. Within at least one full month, each Scholarship reader is expected to complete their evaluations using our SmarterSelect platform - an intuitive site that makes it fast and easy to review applications at your own convenience.

Each applicant is reviewed by five different scholarship readers and is given the final score based on the average of these five evaluations. The Foundation's Board of Directors and Staff then review these scores and applications, awarding scholarships accordingly.
