The Beta Alpha Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated was founded on December 8, 1945, on the campus of Southern University and A&M College. This chapter was chartered by five young ambitious ladies.

The Gamma Rhos Initiated Into Beta Alpha fund awards undergraduate and graduate scholarships annually. Awards will be made on a competitive basis for the Fall and Spring academic semesters. In partnership with the Southern University System Foundation, this Scholarship program will provide sizable financial support for high achieving SU students.
