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.
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.
