CALL FOR CHAPTER HISTORIES – Apply for a Chapter Heritage Grant

In preparation for Pi Gamma Mu’s centennial celebration in 2024, we are updating the history of the Society.  The last history update was completed in celebration of Pi Gamma Mu’s first 75 years and the time has come for another update with our 100th anniversary rapidly approaching.  In this vein, we are asking chapters to explore and record their histories and send the information to our office.  A group of dedicated past and present members of the Board of Trustees will review the information and will use it to create a more thorough historical update of the Society.      

Whether yours is an older chapter or a recent one, preserving and recording for posterity that history and those traditions are important.  With this in mind, the Pi Gamma Mu Board of Trustees created Chapter Heritage Awards and encourages its chapters to apply. There is no deadline.  Applications will be reviewed as they are submitted.  These awards are in the amount of $300 and support the research costs necessary to bring these projects to fruition.

Chapters often have resources to explore their histories unbeknownst to them. Advisers may have chapter files inherited from past advisers that have been largely unexamined. Such files may contain information on past officers, members, projects, publicity, etc. that could be important in writing a chapter history. Also, many college and town newspapers are preserved in university libraries and are a valuable resource for doing such research. Individuals may also possess oral knowledge of their chapter’s activities: current and past advisers can be interviewed along with past officers. A chapter history is a nice item to place on your chapter website and Pi Gamma Mu headquarters is also anxious to collect these documents. Chapters may also want to give thought to renewing the older tradition of electing a chapter historian. To be eligible for a grant supporting the writing of a chapter's history, chapters must have been in existence for at least ten years, but chapters can begin and are encouraged to preserve their history as it unfolds.
