BETA GAMA SIGMA
In 1988, the Beta Gamma Sigma Board of Governors established a scholarship program to award scholarships to deserving student members. The annual awards are available to undergraduate or master’s student members enrolled in a business administration program at a college or university accredited by AACSB International.
Most recently Manar Awad, a senior, won the Beta Gamma Sigma 2014 Scholarship worth $1,000.00.
The current program provides a $1,000 scholarship award to a student member from each chapter that:
- achieves a 70% or greater membership acceptance rate overall – where the Dean’s office provides $500 in matching funds to the Society’s $500 contribution; or
- achieves an 85% or greater membership acceptance rate at a specific degree level (undergraduate or master's level) in the previous year and whose Dean's office provides $500 in matching funds to the Society's $500 contribution.
In addition, any chapter reaching the 85% membership acceptance rate (overall) is recognized as a Premier Chapter and automatically qualifies to award a $1,000 BGS Scholarship. The Premier Chapter recognition pre-qualifies the chapter for the Outstanding Chapter program. Gold Chapter, 1,500 USD; Silver Chapter, 1,250 USD, Bronze Chapter, 1,000 USD, and up to 3 Honorable Mention Chapters 500 USD.
