Kahlert Academic Excellence Awards


As with most fraternal organizations, academic achievement serves as a core value and founding principal of Triangle Fraternity and should be a primary focus for both the chapter and the individual.

While it is acknowledged that Triangle active organizations have a myriad of membership responsibilities it is important to recognize the most important responsibility to not only Triangle, but to self, chapter, and community: academics.

The Triangle Education Foundation with the generous support of the Kahlert Foundation will be recognizing chapter's academic achievements annually in two categories: Outstanding Academic Excellence, and Most Improved Academic Excellence.

Chapters will be awarded annually at National Convention or at Herb Scobie Leadership School based on the academic data that is submitted to the National Fraternity Headquarter Staff. This information will need to be submitted by July 1st and verified by a University Official (Fraternity & Sorority Advisor, Office of the Registrar, etc.).

Outstanding Academic Excellence Award
The award for Outstanding Academic Excellence will be awarded to the chapter with the highest chapter cumulative grade point average. This average should include all active members and new members. This data must be submitted by July 1st via the academic reporting form and should be verified by a University Official.

Additionally, a chapter must be in good standing with both the University and National Fraternity to be eligible for this award.

The chapter with the highest GPA will be awarded $2,000.00
The chapter with the second highest GPA will be awarded $1,000.00
The chapter with the third highest GPA will be awarded $500.00

Most Improved Academic Excellence Award
Academic Excellence is important, but it is also essential to recognize the continuous efforts made by chapter members to continue improving. The award for Most Improved Academic Excellence will be awarded to the chapter who has experienced the greatest improvement in their chapter cumulative grade point average based on a two-year span. These averages should include all active members and new members. This data must be submitted by July 1st via the academic reporting form, and should be verified by a University Official.

Additionally, a chapter must be in good standing with both the University and National Fraternity to be eligible for this award.
The chapter with the most improved GPA will be awarded $1,500.00.
