Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club Betty Burnett Welke Scholarship

In 1932, Elizabeth (Betty) Burnett was initiated into the Indiana Beta Chapter of Pi Beta Phi and served her chapter as the social chairman, rush chairman, and panhellenic representative during her years as an active member.  It was her dedicated service to Pi Phi that formed much of Betty’s legacy.  Applicants’ service to the chapter, therefore, will be a major criteria in awarding this scholarship.  The amount of the award varies from year to year and the scholarship may be applied towards IU tuition, fees, and textbooks.

  2. Applicant must be a sophomore or junior currently attending IU – Bloomington.
  3. Applicant must have at least a 2.50 overall GPA.
