TWO CHAPTER REMINDERS: FORWARD ALL NEW MEMBERS + CHAPTER REPORTS DUE
Chapters are reminded to forward all new members' information and fees from this academic year to the National Office. Individuals become Psi Chi members only when their registration information and fees are received and processed at the National Office. Too often, chapters neglect to forward new chapter inductees to the National Office and thus are never officially recognized as members of Psi Chi. Chapters are also reminded to file the Chapter Annual & Financial Reports by June 30, 2005.
ACHS/WASHINGTON INTERNSHIP INSTITUTE SCHOLARSHIP
The Washington Internship Institute (WII) offers internship opportunities in government agencies, nonprofits, and businesses in Washington, DC each year. Interns spend four days a week at an internship and one day a week in classes bridging theory and practice. Psi Chi members are eligible for a $500 merit-based scholarship cosponsored by the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) and WII. The application deadline for fall semester internships is June 10, 2005.
