Supporting the Lifetime Development of Phi Mu Women Through

Academic Scholarships

Congratulations, Phi Mu Foundation Scholars!

For the 2022-23 academic year, we awarded

$ 0

in scholarships to 134 collegiate & alumnae members.

In 1852, it was rare for a woman to attend college, let alone graduate with her degree.

Our Founders were among the first of their generation to attain a college education; in fact, Wesleyan College was the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Our members today share that same passion for learning.  

Rising tuition costs across the country are challenging students who have few options to help fund their education.
