Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) Scholarship Application

Fraternity & Sorority Life at Bowling Green State University is excited to present a scholarship to attend the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) through the North-American Interfraternity Conference. UIFI is a week-long leadership retreat for undergraduate men and women in fraternities and sororities. UIFI's main purpose is to inspire and educate the current generation of fraternity and sorority leaders to become dedicated, courageous, and principled builders of the future. UIFI is a uniquely holistic journey that you share with other interfraternal brothers and sisters. A UIFI graduate not only learns important leadership lessons, but also reaches deep insides him or herself to find their true fraternal calling. He or she is changed forever.

Your journey will include discussions on purpose, courage, leadership, integrity, and vision. Your work will be done both in full-group sessions and in small discussion groups called "chapters." You will interact with peers from all over North America and with mentors that work professionally in fraternity and sorority life.

UIFI is experiential. It will not feel like a classroom experience, or a simple retreat. It is complex and each day builds upon the one it follows. Time is devoted to written reflection, verbal discussions, active challenges, and personal introspection. There are times to think about the big picture, and times to think about issues on a smaller scale. Of the students who attended UIFI in the past several years and completed the post-institute survey, 98% indicated that UIFI made them better leaders, and 98% also said UIFI deepened their commitment to their fraternity or sorority.
