The Psi Upsilon Foundation’s Social Impact Fellowship Program provides up to $10,000 in annual grants for the professional development of leaders in social-impact driven professions.
The fellowship program helps brothers transition into public service jobs and assume volunteer leadership positions at any point in their careers. Among other things, fellowship grants can be used to attend conferences and seminars, courses, to help build professional networks and gain corporate governance, financial management, strategic planning, fundraising, human resources, and conflict resolution skills. In addition to providing direct financial support, the fellowship program recognizes brothers who have made outstanding contributions to society and encourages members of different cohorts to learn about each other’s work.

“Public service is a hallmark of Psi Upsilon. Our brothers have included presidents, prime ministers, Supreme Court justices, cabinet secretaries, diplomats, members of Congress and philanthropists, not to mention thousands of outstanding men and women who have taken on less visible, but highly significant leadership roles in their communities. This important new initiative helps ensure Psi Upsilon’s tradition of public service continues for many years to come.” • Alexander Senchak, Eta ’06
