Phi Gamma Delta is committed to promoting leadership and scholarship among its members. The Lambda Nu chapter of Phi Gamma Delta is offering the Black Diamond Scholarship to support the higher education of quality men and aid in the development of strong leaders within the University of Nebraska — Lincoln. Please note the following details about this scholarship:
Fiji is not for college days alone. This Brotherhood has a lot to offer, including a great social life, networking, companionship, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Phi Gamma Delta offers much to our members through leadership development, educational programs, and lifelong friendships. We say that Phi Gamma Delta is “not for college days alone.” Our Brothers may graduate from college, but they never graduate from Phi Gamma Delta. They carry with them lifelong friendships, skills and the experiences from their undergraduate years. In the below videos, alumni share their thoughts on what it means to be a FIJI and the positive impact it continues to have in their lives.
Four Lambda Nu Brothers volunteered at the 2013 Senior Golf Open last July held at the Omaha Country Club.
Handling their duties were brothers Tom Fitchet, Lincoln, Dale “Green” Andersen, Omaha, Joe “Dr Joe” Skradski, Omaha and Jim “Killer” Killips, Omaha
Graduate Brothers – know of fine young men who plan to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this fall? If so, please let us know so we can contact them to see if they are interested in becoming part of the PhiGam tradition. The chapter values and thanks you for any assistance you can provide.
Any pledge who earns a 3.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) or higher during their pledging semester receives an Academic Achievement Award (AAA) from the Phi Gamma Delta Educational Foundation. Studies show that students who start their academic careers with high GPA are more likely to graduate from the college. To receive this scholarship, the applicant must have pledged and initiated the fraternity, earned a 3.0 GPA or higher on a 4.0 scale and submit an AAA Scholarship Application (provided by the chapter).
