A Model Grant
Description of the event/project, including when it will take place
Phi Eta Sigma will be hosting an induction to welcome new members for the 2017-2018 year. We’ll be providing a catered dinner (from Aramark) for our members as well as renting equipment from Conference Services. We’re asking ASBSU to fund a portion of the catering expenses. The induction is on February 3, 2018. We expect 100 people to attend. Our goal is to create a unique evening to recognize the academic achievement of our members and encourage the engagement with our organization during their college experience.
Timeline for applying
- The event is on February 3, 2018
