C.H.I. scholarship applications are open

The C.H.I. Scholarship, founded by the Courageous Chi Chapter of the Lambda Pi Upsilon Sorority, Latinas Poderosas Unidas, and partnered with the Student Government Association, was created to help foster youth with limited resources to pursue a higher education and to support them throughout their collegiate career. The C.H.I. acronym stands for those who exemplify courage, honor and independence by recognizing their strive to better themselves academically.

The Chi Chapter strongly believes that it is crucial to help aid, educate and mentor disadvantaged persons in order to change, challenge and improve society. The chapter’s philanthropy for children in foster care is not only significant for the members of the sorority, but also within Kansas, which contributes to the national foster care crisis. Numerous foster youth are discouraged to attain a higher education due to the lack of financial support and management. The Chi Chapter will provide financial literacy and mentorship directly to the recipient in order to help combat the systemic challenges they face with being in foster care.

  • Unofficial transcript
