The Clifford B. Scott Key Award is presented annually to the brother in each chapter who has the highest grade point average for the year. The award honors former Journal Editor and Order of the Golden Heart recipient Clifford B. Scott, Nebraska, 1916, who wrote the words and music to the Sigma Phi Epsilon Anthem.
This award recipient is nominated by the undergraduate chapter through the Headquarters staff.
Nominations are due at Headquarters by October 1, following the academic year the award was earned.
The recipient receives a certificate from Headquarters. It is recommended the chapter invite a school official to present the award in front of the chapter. The Balanced Man Scholarship banquet is often a great occasion to present the award, to show the chapter’s commitment to academic success in front of potential new members and their parents.
The Scott Key Award Pin may be ordered through SigEp's official jeweler, Herff Jones.
