Bro. Tyrone Baker Sr. Scholarship


Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated was founded at Howard University in Washington, DC on January 9, 1914, by three young African American male students. The founders, A. Langston Taylor, Leonard F. Morse, and Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship and Service. Today, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. has more than 105,000 members in 650 collegiate and alumni chapters in the continental U.S., Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean. Kappa Upsilon Sigma Chapter, the alumni chapter which services Burlington and Atlantic Counties, has designed the “Bro. Tyrone Baker, Sr. Scholarship Program” to:

  • • Assist male graduating seniors in obtaining a college education.

  • • Promote our fraternity’s ideal of scholarship.
