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.

Scheduled to be awarded for the first time in 2019, The Madeleine Claire McNulty Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a collegiate member from the pool of applicants being reviewed for scholarship at this time.
