Beacon of Light Foundation of Eta Xi Sigma of Sigma Gamma Rho 2022 Centennial Scholarship

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated was founded on November 12, 1922, on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. The sorority, which is the only one of the four National Pan-Hellenic Council sororities started on a predominantly white college campus, was chartered by seven school teachers who were determined to create an organization of women who were committed to higher education, dedicated to youth, living by the highest ethical standards, and rendering unselfish service to make a better society. Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2022.

To continue their legacy, Eta Xi Sigma Alumnae chapter of Oak Lawn, IL  presents awards each year to qualified applicants.

On August 16, 1992, forty-six women chartered Eta Xi Sigma Alumnae Chapter in Oak Lawn, Illinois, one of the largest graduate chapters in Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority’s history. As their numbers grew, they saw a need to further their Founders’ dream of achievement through higher education, and thus, expanded their services in the community through the awarding of college scholarships to highly talented and deserving graduating high school seniors. Scholarship recipients will be identified as Eta Xi Sigma Scholars and honored at our annual Pre-Mother’s Day Rhomania Celebration. Eta Xi Sigma Alumnae Chapter will celebrate its 30th anniversary in August 2022.
