The 1848 Club was launched in 2017 to provide scholarships for brothers in need.  All money raised will be awarded to Rho Phi chapter brothers in the form of academic scholarships.

Our goals include:

  • Awarding nine $1000 scholarships each year to deserving brothers
  • Have at least 50 members of the 1848 Club by our 50th Anniversary in 2019
  • Begin the process of endowing permanent scholarships through the Phi Gamma Delta Educational Foundation

Members pledge to donate at least $18.48 per month (or $221.76 annually).
