Research Foundation Program
In 1990, the Executive Committee of Beta Beta Beta initiated the development of the Beta Beta Beta Research Foundation. The Foundation supports undergraduate research thus, the Beta Beta Beta Research Grant Foundation was established. Cash grants are awarded annually to support deserving undergraduate research projects. Beginning in 1994, 90% of the accumulated interest from the Foundation funds were distributed to selected undergraduate student members of Beta Beta Beta. Recipients are selected on the basis of an application reviewed by his/her Regional Vice President and District Directors.
The Foundation will continue to award grants annually and begin seeking financial support through fund raising programs. Contributions will be sought from corporations, fund groups, individuals, and our own chapters. It is hoped that TriBeta chapters will assume an active role in the drive, since their members will be the ones to benefit. Contributions from chapters may be derived from fund-raisers, dues, alumni support, or leftover funds at the end of the year. The fund drive plan is as follows:
