The Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation is the vehicle for alumni, family, friends, and other like-minded organizations to build a legacy and change lives. We fund endeavors for "Building Balanced Men." We support environments that foster academic achievement, scholarships that encourage excellence, and educational programs that develop leadership and personal potential.
Current support provides funding for the following:
National Competition Scholarships
Each year the Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation awards 20 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to outstanding scholars and balanced men. These men have distinguished themselves through accomplishments in the classroom, on campus, in the community and in their chapters. With 15,000 men on campus and hundreds applying for this scholarship, this group truly represents the best of SigEp’s commitment to be a valued partner in higher education. | Learn more
