Our Best Answer - Are there payment plans or scholarships available to help pay for the cost of joining a fraternity or soroity?

Greek Life Payment Plans

Most chapters have a payment plan. Dues can be paid quarterly, monthly, or sometimes even bi-weekly. Many Greeks work part-time to afford dues and the payments can be accommodated based on each member’s needs.

Scholarships are available at the chapter, council, and national headquarters levels. Many chapters offer scholarships for members who excel academically. Two of our councils, NPHC and PanHellenic, offer council-wide scholarships for members that identify with their mission and exemplify academic excellence.
