Last year the Toronto Area Alumnae Club (TAAC) started is first annual TAAC Undergraduate Scholarship. Recognizing the advanced academics, commitment to the Fraternity and philanthropic service of collegian Pi Phi women from our three Ontario chapters, Ontario Alpha, Beta and Gamma. The $850 scholarship is granted to one Ontario collegian who exemplifies our Fraternity core values, is working to make an impact in her community and is in financial need. Last year we had the privilege of receiving many applications from all three chapters and hearing about their important work in literacy, academic pursuits and within their chapters and Panhellenic communities. Our 2015-2016 recipient was Brianna Guertin (Ontario Alpha), for her outstanding academic achievements at the University of Toronto and her work with the University of Toronto Panhellenic Council.
In support of the TAAC Undergraduate Scholarship, the Club is participating in the Toronto Women’s Run Series.
