Brothers who assume large-scale service learning projects have the opportunity to undertake the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fellow challenge. These projects push service learning to the highest level to solve genuine problems within a community. Fellow projects provide hands-on experiences that teach leadership, mentoring, and how to care about and serve others— all essential steps toward becoming a balanced man. They put into real world practice our cardinal principles of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love.
Sigma Phi Epsilon Fellows are recognized for their efforts every two years at the Grand Chapter Conclave.
Below are the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fellow requirements:
- Select a Fellow Challenge mentor and meet with him/her to review the expectations and goals.
- Develop three written goals.
- Submit an application to the Fellow Projects Task Force that details how the project fulfills seven critical areas of service learning: real community need, partnership, planning including risk management, orientation and training, meaningful action, reflection and evaluation.
- Receive notification from the task force that the project will qualify.
- Complete the proposed 500-hour or 60-day service-learning project.
- Submit a final summary report to the Fellows Project Task Force, including an overview, timesheet, cost analysis, letters of recommendation, photographs, and a written report on how the project fulfilled each of the seven critical areas of service learning.
- Create a lasting service-learning project for your chapter that will continue after graduation.
- Maintain at least a 3.0 cumulate grade point average.
- Be a member of the Epsilon Challenge, with the goal of becoming a member of the Brother Mentor Challenge by the time the Fellow Project is started.
