Washington University Chapter Beta Omega
Sigma Delta Pi is the only honor society devoted exclusively to students of Spanish in four-year colleges and universities. Sigma Delta Pi is not only the largest foreign-language honor society in existence (with over 150,000 members), it is among the elite as attested by its membership since 1966 in the Association of College Honor Societies, the nation's only certifying agency for college and university honor societies
Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society (La Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispánica), was established on November 14, 1919, at the University of California in Berkeley. Its insignia is the royal seal of Fernando and Isabel, representing Castille, León and Aragón. The Society's colors are red and gold and its flower is the red carnation.
Sigma Delta Pi offers a growing scholarship program exclusively for its active members, with annual undergraduate awards (29 to be granted in 2011/2012) for summer study in Spain, Mexico, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. The chapter will also nominate one student per year for the Gabriela Mistral Award, a signal honor for an especially outstanding student.
