North American Interfraternal Foundation

Forget "Animal House" – there’s a staggering amount of resources available to members of the Greek system that don’t involve donning a toga or tapping a keg. The North American Interfraternal Foundation (NIF), a 501 (c) 3 organization, is dedicated to promoting and supporting leadership, educational and research initiatives geared toward advancing fraternal experience. These programs include scholarships and fellowships for undergraduate and graduate members of social and professional fraternities and sororities, sponsorship to encourage and recognize constructive Greek press, and grants to organizations that support the NIF’s overall mission.

The connections you make through the Greek system can last a lifetime, as can the opportunities one can gain from getting involved with the NIF. In addition to the Jack Anson Fellowship and the The Lloyd G. Balfour Fellowships we previously mentioned, the NIF also offers the James H. McLaughlin Scholarship and Mary Louise Roller Panhellenic Scholarship annually.

Like college-based or alumni awards, the awards and scholarships funded by the NIF are limited only by the donations the foundation receives so if you wore your letters proudly during undergrad, consider making a contribution of any size…it could pay off in dividends down the line.
