Dear George Mason University Student:
On behalf of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, I would like to wish you the best for this fall term. In the months and years to come, you will undoubtedly encounter new challenges and opportunities that will shape your college experience and lead to future success.
Beta Theta Pi believes college men should be recognized for their success and for their desire to achieve. For 177 years Beta has been in the business of developing men of principle for a principled life. Beta Theta Pi provides strong relationships, leadership opportunities and personal development. For many of our members, these skills have transferred to professional life. You have probably heard of some of them: Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, Baseball Hall of Fame Third Baseman and Ohio University alumnus Mike Schmidt, retail guru Bruce Nordstrom and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman.
As a way to provide similar opportunities on our campus, Beta Theta Pi is offering $500 in scholarships designated for non-Greek male students at George Mason University. The scholarship is designed to reward individuals who demonstrate devotion to academic achievement and a commitment to making the university and the community better places to live. Most importantly, we seek those who desire to develop skills that will not only help them become successful in college, but will also carry over to their professional and personal lives.
If you are interested, please complete the application and drop it off at the front desk of the Student Involvement Office on the main floor of the HUB building between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. any weekday on or before September 5th, 2017. The application may also be completed online at http://my.beta.org/ors/scholarshipapp.aspx?chap=100255
By applying for these scholarships, you are in no way committing yourself to membership in Beta Theta Pi or any other organization.
If you should have any questions, please contact me at 501.499.7189 or email@example.com. I look forward to receiving your application and meeting you soon.
