On behalf of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, congratulations on your acceptance to John Carroll University! This year you will no doubt encounter new challenges and opportunities that will help to shape your college experience and lead to future success in life.
Beta Theta Pi believes that college men should be recognized for their success and for their desire to achieve. In fact, for more than 177 years, we have been developing men of principle for a principled life. Beta strives to provide strong relationships as well as leadership opportunities and personal development. For many of our members, these skills have transferred to professional life. You may have heard of some of them: Sam Walton, founder of Walmart; Mike Schmidt, Hall of Fame MLB player; Neil Everett, ESPN broadcaster; and John Wooden, legendary college basketball coach.
In hopes of providing these same opportunities to your campus, Beta Theta Pi is offering a $1,000 scholarship designated by the Beta Theta Pi Foundation for non-Greek male students at John Carroll University with no obligation to join the fraternity. We seek to reward men who demonstrate devotion to intellectual growth and a commitment to making both the university and community better places to live.
If you are interested in the scholarships, I encourage you to visit http://my.beta.org/ors/scholarshipapp.aspx?chap=100359 and complete the application. Please note that the deadline to apply is September 4th. If your application is considered, we will reach out to you for an in person interview. Again, by applying for the scholarships, you are not committing yourself to membership in Beta Theta Pi or any other organization.
If you should have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I look forward to receiving your application and meeting you soon!
