Scholarships

Phi Omega annually awards scholarships to high school seniors who plan to matriculate at a four-year college or university.  The scholarship awards are intended to provide African- American females an opportunity to achieve their post-secondary educational pursuits.

The 2021 Scholarships were awarded in two categories:

 

1. The Phi Omega Scholarship ($500) - awarded to two (2) female high school seniors in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County, who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, community service, and leadership.

 

2. The Pearl Scholarship ($1,000) - awarded to four (4) female high school seniors who meet the above criteria but must attend a Historically Black College or University (HBCU).
