Endowed Scholarships

The Dr. Toby Tamarkin Scholarship

Dr. Toby Tamarkin of the Sigma Chapter at The Ohio State University worked her way through college. Her focused dedication to her education while having to work a job is a testament to her fortitude. Her drive created a successful 33-year career as a teacher, professor and administrator, touching the lives of hundreds of students. She also was a leader in language education at the local, state, regional and national level. First granted in 2017, the Dr. Toby Tamarkin Scholarship is awarded to the recipient who demonstrates this drive.

Applicants must be studying for a career in education and must have a job to help them attain their goal. Graduate students who apply should be involved in at least one organization in their educational field.

The Madeleine Claire McNulty Scholarship

Awarded for the first time in 2019, The Madeleine Claire McNulty Scholarship, named in commemoration of the daughter of Past International President Dawn Barta McNulty, Phi Sigma Chapter at Northern Illinois University was created to support a sorority member who has overcome a medical, personal or family difficulty. Madeleine was a diligent student, passionate dancer and Special Olympics gold medalist. She embodied our founding values of Justice, Sisterhood, and Love.

Having battled a lifelong seizure disorder, Madeleine lost her battle with epilepsy early last year. The McNulty family had designated the Educational Foundation to receive donations in memory of their beloved daughter and has since endowed this scholarship.

The Arleen Kruger Honick Scholarship

Arleen Kruger Honick is one of our sisterhood’s most prolific leaders, volunteers and supporters. Adding to her years of dedication to Delta Phi Epsilon, Arleen’s commitment has reached even greater heights recently with the Arleen Kruger Honick Scholarship named in her honor. This scholarship, which began in 2018, honors Arleen for her dedication to DPhiE through volunteering and serving as past international president. Recipients of the Arleen Kruger Honick Scholarship must be undergraduate members of the Psi Chapter at the University of Georgia, Honick’s home chapter.
