Iowa State's Darryl Jahn Scholarship

We are pleased to inform you that Beta Sigma Psi will be providing three $2,000 scholarships to men attending Iowa State University in the fall of 2020. Applicants do not need to join Beta Sigma Psi to be awarded a scholarship. If you could please post the link to the application (pasted below) on your scholarship web page and print off the attached page to have available for any interested men, we would greatly appreciate it!

Beta Sigma Psi is composed of about 60 men and is located in the heart of Iowa State's 'Greekland' neighborhood. Our chapter house provides a comfortable and well-kept home for our members. The cost of living at our chapter house is lower than university housing and located only a block from campus. We are focused on three core values:

  • Spiritual - We were founded at Memorial Lutheran Church in 1949 and it has been our home church ever since. The men of Beta Sigma Psi are also involved in other on-campus ministries such as Kairos, The Navigators, and Salt Company. We prioritize community involvement and participate in various service organizations such as the Puppy Jake Foundation and Habitat for Humanity.
  • Scholastic - We are consistently in the top 5 out of 33 fraternities on campus when measured by grade point average. The All-Greek GPA at Iowa State is always higher than the All-University GPA and we continue to place at or near the top of the All-Greek GPA rankings each year. Beta Sigma Psi also provides structured mentorship and advising, free university tutoring, complementary printing, and Dean's List scholarships.
  • Social - We are fully active in Greek activities such as Homecoming and Greek Week and we hold many other social events throughout the year. Over the summer we also hold group events, including a canoe float trip and a trip to see a Major League Baseball team. Our men typically organize trips to Iowa State Football away games, and bowl games.

Thank you for your cooperation in communicating this scholarship to the students of your school. Please reach out if there is any additional information you need! If you have received this email by mistake and think there is someone else who could better help us, please forward this information on to the appropriate person, or pass their contact information along to me.
