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 men on campuses across the country, this group truly represents the best of SigEp’s commitment to be a valued partner in higher education. | Learn more

Balanced Man Scholarships
The Balanced Man Scholarship (BMS) originated in 1990 at the University of Cincinnati Chapter, as a way to attract men of Sound Mind and Sound Body, while rewarding them for espousing the ideals of the Fraternity. Today, over 200 chapters use the BMS to identify balanced men to join SigEp. | Learn more
