At Acacia, we believe in giving back to the community that has given so much to us. That is why we provide our members with an internal scholarship program, awarding thousands of dollars to members every semester, and provide male freshmen that will be attending the University of Iowa the opportunity to apply for our scholarship in honor of the late Acacia alumnus Thomas Macbride. This year’s application for those enrolling in the fall 2020 semester is now open. 

On campus, the Thomas Macbride scholarship program is the second-largest, awarding up  $10,000 each year to deserving first-year students in the allotments of $250 to $3,000. Additionally, Acacia chooses its scholars on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and service; and is independent of one’s decision to join a Greek organization. 

This years application is due May 31st, 2020 and can be submitted by email in PDF form to Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
