Scholarships

UC Berkeley PHC offers a variety of academic resources for its members, which mostly consist of scholarships and monthly study. However, this is by no means a limit to the academic opportunities PHC members will have access too, as chapters often have their own chapter specific resources like study files, chapter-specific scholarships (which are listed under each chapter in Chapter Directory), academic advisors, and events for networking, and meeting alumnae. If you are interested in the ways that PHC invests in the academic well-being of its members or scholarships available, please contact the VP of Scholarship Nya Marquez at phc.scholarship@calgreeks.com
