Help grow Pi Chi Omega scholarships


January 5, 2018

Pi Chi OmegaIn October, the membership of industry fraternity Pi Chi Omega voted to make the scholarship named in honor of Dr. Austin Frishman, a longtime Pi Chi Omega member, PMP columnist and Hall of Famer (Class of 2002), perpetual. The scholarship is currently set at $2,000, but the fraternity is hoping to bring it up to $3,000.

In addition, it hopes to honor the late Alain VanRyckeghem with a new student scholarship. VanRyckeghem, 55, passed away on Nov. 28, 2017 after a nine-month battle with brain cancer. The Pi Chi Omega member, who served as technical director for Insects Limited for more than 20 years, was known by many as a world-class stored product entomologist and pheromone chemist. Insects Limited will match each dollar donated to this scholarship with two dollars.

If you would like to make a contribution to either scholarship, please contact or call 540-376-3617.
