"We believe ourselves to be sincere searchers for truth."
‐ Constitution of Alpha Phi International Fraternity, Incorporated, Article II
We know that our members' number one goal in attending university is to receive a world-class education that will set them on the road to success.
McGill Alpha Phis excel not only in the classroom individually, but as a chapter, helping one another to succeed. During the semester we hold regular study hours and exam preparation workshops. Due to our members' wide variety of programs of study, the Kappa Zeta Chapter does not require its members to maintain a certain GPA, but we instead ask that our members have the desire to challenge themselves academically. Our members are always helping one another in their studies because sharing our talents and lifting each other up is what true sisterhood means to us.
Scholarship is one of the most important values of Alpha Phi. In 1872, Alpha Phi’s Founders established a legacy of support for women to achieve their education at a time when most women did not have access to academic opportunities. In 1875, three of Alpha Phi’s ten Founders were among the first women to be admitted to Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest honours society in the USA.
Alpha Phi supports its members in their academic pursuits so they can reach their fullest potential. Every year, the Alpha Phi Foundation awards over $340,000 in scholarships to graduate and undergraduate members. Click here to visit the Alpha Phi Foundation website for more information.
