Star Chapter Award Winners

Star Chapter Awards

Alpha Chi Sigma Awards

The Fraternity awards numerous awards to individuals and chapters, to both collegiate members and professional members. Some awards are presented at each Biennial Conclave, while others are awarded each year. 

Star Chapter Awards

The Grand Chapter presents the Star Chapter Awards to collegiate chapters for exemplary performance in several areas. The Star Chapter Awards are earned by collegiate chapters that participate and document a set number of professional, service, and alumni activities. These documented activities are well above and beyond the level required for Alpha Chi Sigma to retain its tax classification status.
