uAspire is excited to announce that we were named as the recipient of the Scholarship Award from the Zeta Nu Sigma Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority. uAspire received the award at the 71st annual Northeastern Regional Conference at the Strand Theater in Dorchester.

The Scholarship Award is awarded to an organization that is truly dedicated to Scholarship within the community and beyond. uAspire was chosen as this year’s recipient because of the contributions made to the Greater Boston community – by not only providing access to financial information and resources, but also providing hope to young people who desire to continue through a post-secondary education. According to Sigma Gamma Rho, uAspire “is a valued organization in our community because it addresses a major barrier to scholastic achievement and fosters opportunities for Scholarship for our young people.”

Organized on November 12, 1922 in Indianapolis at Butler University by seven school teachers, Sigma Gamma Rho was founded on and continues to be steadfastly committed to the tenets of excellence in Scholarship, Sisterhood and Service.  Sigma Gamma Rho has a proud legacy of providing positive and proactive community leadership and support when and wherever needed as indicated by the sorority’s international slogan, “Greater Service, Greater Progress.” Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority’s aim is to enhance the quality of life within the community. Public service, leadership development and education of youth are the hallmarks of the organization’s programs and activities. Sigma Gamma Rho addresses concerns that impact society educationally, civically, and economically.
