Stay Involved After Graduation
There are many roles, opportunities, and activities that you can participate in after graduation, which can happen at both the local and national level. Listed below are the ways to maintain your involvement with the Fraternity. If you would like more information or don't see an opportunity listed below that you would like to assist with, please contact Alpha Sigma Phi Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just as an undergraduate in the chapter, you can hold positions as an alumnus. The Fraternity has a number of volunteer opportunities across the United States and the list continues to grow each academic term. Alpha Sigma Phi encourages alumni to stay involved and volunteer to serve on either a Chapter Council, Alumni Association, or on a House Corporation. Alpha Sigma Phi also has volunteer opportunities with the Ritual Education Team for those who are new graduates. If you have been out of school for a couple of years, you can volunteer to be a member of the Editorial Board. Alumni that have generally been out of school for five or more years can serve as facilitators at Grand Chapter, January Leadership Programs, or Elevate - International Leadership Program. To learn more about these opportunities, email email@example.com.
You can also help the chapter by providing financial assistance. By supporting the chapter, you will provide opportunities for our undergraduate members to attend leadership programs, retreats, etc. No matter what your income level may be, you can become a donor to Alpha Sigma Phi. Your chapter has a chapter endowment already established that you can contribute to monthly, quarterly, or annually. Your financial assistance will aid the chapter in its growth and development. To support your chapter, donate now.
Here is your opportunity to give back and assist undergraduate members by becoming a mentor. You will be able to act as a great source of information to them. They may have questions concerning different career paths or what the job market is like. We are all aware that college helps prepare us for the real world, but what better way to get a true picture than actually talking to someone in the field. This will provide the undergraduates a better insight into a prospective field and provide you with a sense of fulfillment. One of the best ways to have a meaningful mentoring relationship is to serve on the Chapter Council where you will be paired with one or two undergraduate leaders.
In addition, the Fraternity has launched a new platform called the Alpha Sigma Phi Mentor Network. The Mentor Network is a platform where members can connect and become mentors and mentees. The program allows members to schedule time with each other for career advice, mock interviews or resume reviews. It is a completely free network for Alpha Sigma Phi members and there is no limit to how many brothers you can connect with!
The Fraternity offers those pursuing a graduate degree with several scholarship opportunities. These opportunities are named to honor Brother Howard Kleinoeder, Washington '35, who donated $6.4 million to the Foundation upon his passing into Omega Chapter in 1990. This scholarship(s) is presented to brothers pursuing graduate-level degrees at accredited institutions. Applications are available beginning in January and are due on April 15.
