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.
With the cost of college consistently on the rise, scholarships are transformative to undergraduate members, helping them in their academic pursuits. The award criteria and recipients are selected by the sponsoring local Alumni and Volunteer Corporation (AVC).
Instructions for AVCs: The AVC should approve disbursements and submit one request per recipient here. If scholarships have already been granted directly, reach out to email@example.com for reimbursement options.
Note: Any requests to expedite shipping of scholarship checks will incur a fee to the scholarship fund in use. If checks are not cashed within 90 days of date issued, they become invalid. If your check(s) is invalid, please send it back to us for reissue. Checks that are not returned are subject to a stop payment fee of $35.

Grants that support chapter homes
There are several types of grants that support chapter homes:
- Residential Learning Community (RLC) Grants are available from restricted chapter funds like a chapter’s RLC Fund or CIF Fund, held with the Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation. RLC Grants can cover the cost of purchase, construction or renovation of educational areas in the chapter house such as libraries, study rooms, computer rooms or museums. It may also be used for educational furnishings, including relevant technology installations.
- Annual operational grants are also available from a chapter’s RLC Fund or CIF Fund in subsequent years to cover the annual expenses related to operating these educational areas.
