The “Alpha Nu Resolute Man Scholarship” is an annual award which recognizes an incoming freshman male enrolling at the Georgia Institute of Technology. One recipient for the scholarship will be selected to receive a $500 award. This recipient will be a student who exhibits the qualities of a Resolute Man through previous academic and extracurricular experiences, strong values and plans to show a commitment to our campus and local communities.
Our Chapter is extremely proud to embody our Fraternity’s maxim “Alma Mater First and Theta Chi for Alma Mater.” Our Spring 2019 Brotherhood GPA not only exceeded the All-IFC Fraternity Men’s GPA, but surpassed the All-Greek and All-Undergraduate average GPAs as well. Additonally, out of the 32 Fraternities under the Interfraternity Council, our most recent pledge class held the 5th highest New Member GPA. At an instituation of high caliber such as Georgia Tech, we recognize the importance of supporting all of our members in their academic endeavors, and we believe this emphasis on academic success begins with our new members.
