In order to help boost the sales of Score-Booster, the company created a Greek scholarship program, where $5 was donated to the Greek organization of the buyer's choice for each bottle sold. Thanks to Blackwood's position and connection to brothers around the world, Phi Kappa Psi was one of the first Greek organizations to benefit.
"We created the scholarship funds in order to give back to the student community," stated Blackwood said. "An additional $1,000 can go a long way toward helping students achieve their academic goals, and we appreciate the opportunity to share some of the success we've experienced with Score-Booster."
The scholarship awards a student, in good standing with his or her Greek organization, that shows the greatest academic improvement over two periods. The student must also follow Ivy League Labs on both Facebook and Twitter.
The beneficiary of this first award for Phi Psi was John. D Miller Creighton '08, who showed a 64% improvement in his GPA from fall to spring semester during the 2009-10 academic year. Brother Miller could be the first of several Phi Kappa Psi members to receive such an award, as scholarships will be awarded twice a year to eligible organizations. Currently, Phi Kappa Psi and Pi Beta Phi have scholarships available.
