This is a list of Alpha Rho Chapter Internal Awards. The Chapter has several awards it bestows upon its undergraduate and Alumni Brothers. The selection criteria and frequency of the awards vary, and are described in further detail below.

Chapter Service Key

Josh Marder, 1996 Chapter Service Key Recipient

The highest honor that can be bestowed by the Chapter, Alpha Rho has awarded eight Chapter Service Keys to its Brothers in recognition of outstanding service to Phi Sigma Pi. A Chapter Service Key may only be awarded by consent of 2/3 of the Active Brotherhood.

Loren P. Johnson Outstanding Alumni Award

Established in 1996 and named after its first recipient, this award is presented annually at the Chapter's Alumni Banquet to the Alumnus/a who has provided the most outstanding leadership and dedication to the Chapter for the previous year.

David Spracher, 2005 Loren P. Johnson Outstanding Alumni Award Recipient

Rexford J. Card Exemplary Local Alumni Award

Rex "Joey" Card, 2004 Local Alumni Award Recipient & Award Namesake

Originally titled the Above and Beyond the Call of Duty (ABCD) Award, this award was established in 2002 to honor local Alumni who make significant contributions to the Chapter. In 2006, the award was renamed after Rex "Joey" Card to recognize his continued dedication as a local Alumnus. The award does not have to be bestowed every year. By this means, the Chapter is charged with honoring only the most deserving Alumni.

Established in 1997, this award and $500 scholarship is bestowed annually by the Chapter to an undergraduate Brother of Alpha Rho. The recipient is selected by the Alpha Rho Alumni Advisory Board based on a resume and essays detailing the applicant's excellence in scholarship, leadership and fellowship. In 2009, the award was renamed after Emily Specchio in honor of the 2006 recipient who tragically passed away just months after receiving the scholarship.
