Each year Tri Delta awards a limited number of scholarships for collegiate members to attend the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI), hosted by the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC).
What is UIFI?
At UIFI, participants learn with and from peers who belong to various organizations and councils. The program will help you identify the leader you want to be and where you can make the most impact on your chapter, council and community. You will define the challenges our communities face and leave with the tools and resources to address those challenges all while developing skills that are useful in and out of fraternity and sorority life. Multiple UIFI sessions will be held throughout the summer at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
What is the structure of UIFI?
UIFI is an immersive living-learning experience. Participants and facilitators will move in to sorority facilities at Indiana University and are broken into “chapters” for the five-day program. Chapters consist of members of various fraternal organizations and councils and are led by two facilitators. Chapters spend the entire week with their chapter and facilitators participating in activities, doing a service project together and having critical and important conversations about the state of the fraternity and sorority experience. At the end of the week, participants develop a personal action plan and are challenged to let their plan guide them as they lead in their chapters and on their campuses.
Who is eligible to apply for the Eve Woods Riley UIFI Scholarship?
All Tri Delta collegiate members are encouraged to apply for the scholarship.
What costs does the scholarship cover?
Tri Delta scholarships cover the registration fee, lodging and meals for the duration of the institute. All UIFI participants are responsible for travel expenses to and from Bloomington.
What does Tri Delta expect from UIFI participants?
Tri Delta is excited to invest in our members’ personal leadership journeys. For you to get the most out of the UIFI experience we ask that our members commit to the following:
- Developing a personal action plan and commit to using your plan to guide you to affecting positive change in your chapter.
- Recording your UIFI experience, explaining what you learned, what you will take back to your chapter and how change can be implemented.
- Discussing how sorority leaders live their Ritual and having the courage, character and commitment to do what is right.
