Atlanta, GA – Since 2011, the Delta Phi Lambda Foundation has sponsored scholarships to assist with sisters’ travel expenses in attending the AFLV Central Conference, which also holds the Midyear Leadership Conference for Delta Phi Lambda. This year, approximately 3,500 campus administrators, national organizations, and students convened in Indianapolis, Ind. for the conference.
The Foundation has continued to sponsor scholarships for the conference because of the leadership education and networking opportunity the conference provides. This year, the Foundation awarded scholarships to three sisters: Windy “CalytriX” Nguyen from University of Iowa, Celina“Skyfall” Yang from Grand Valley State University, and Victoria“Persevere” Le from Clemson University.
“By attending the AFLV conference, I hope to learn as much as I can from other Greek campus leaders in order to leave my legacy,” Le said. “I want to learn more ways I can give back to my community and show the community that Greek life goes beyond the stereotypes. I only have one semester left but I want to ensure that this last semester will have the most impact I will ever leave on my campus.”
The scholarship also grants sisters the opportunity to connect with other dedicate female leaders from around the nation at the sorority’s Midyear Leadership Conference.
“This past AFLV Conference, I was fortunate enough to attend and spend my last year of undergraduate study getting to know more sisters and relaying my knowledge to others,” Yang said.
“This experience has been amazing. I’ve met a lot of people and I’m definitely learning a lot from everything and everyone,” Nguyen said. “I want to thank the DPhiL Foundation for giving me an opportunity to experience such an event. Without the scholarship, I wouldn’t have gone.”
