Greek Oscars applications have officially opened!  
We have made a few changes to the applications this year. There will be two IFC first place awards, one for chapters that are above the average IFC membership and one for chapters that are below the average, for the following applications: Chapter of the Year, Chapter President of the Year, Risk Management, Scholarship, and Philanthropy. In order to accommodate for these changes and cost of trophies, IFC chapters will no longer apply for the following awards: Executive Board of the Year and Outstanding Program of the Year.
