During these unprecedented times as we face a worldwide pandemic with the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, our first priority among the men of Upsilon Tau Chapter is the health and well-being of our families, friends and communities. We have taken into consideration the impact of this sweeping virus.  The Upsilon Tau Foundation is extending its deadline for our scholarships (including the David S. Bagley, Sr. Memorial Scholarship) applications from Wednesday, March 25, 2020 to Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

Please remain safe and in good spirits while this pandemic affects our communities.

How can I help?

In recent years, Upsilon Tau has been fortunate to increase the amount of the scholarship because of excellent fundraising years.  We owe that to you for your support at our various fundraising events.  As our application pool shows, there are many deserving students that need scholarships to help pay for their college education, and it is our hope to increase our fundraising dollars to expand our reach.
