We believe that recognizing students who exhibit balance and all-around excellence is a way to promote this important ideal. This year we will award $4000 in five scholarships to incoming freshmen. Our goal is to reward men who exemplify the qualities of a “Sound Mind and a Sound Body”, as we believe they are essential to leading a balanced life. Applicants are not obligated to be affiliated with Sigma Phi Epsilon in order to be qualified for this scholarship.
Why is SigEp different? The Balanced Man Program offers a no pledging, no hazing, four-year experience, focused on personal and professional development. SigEp offers a full membership from day one to our new members allowing them to attend chapter and participate in our revolutionary New Member Accelerator Program and the Balanced Man Leadership Continuum. Members learn to live their best lives through unique, rewarding programming tailored to fit their needs and prepare them for the life journey ahead. By developing a Sound Mind in a Sound Body, and with continuous membership development throughout all 4 years, SigEp members acquire the tools to build success that will last far beyond their college years into their careers.
SigEp is founded on the belief that we will always strive to be different. SigEp is the one of the largest national fraternities in the country, boasting 319,000 lifetime members and 15,000 undergraduate members. At the local level, Missouri S&T SigEps have led the campus in academics, garnering the highest GPA frequently in the past few years, most recently in the Spring 2017 semester, while consistently being in the top three among fraternities every semester since Fall 2016. In Spring 2014, our chapter was the only fraternity to finish above the 3.25 campus scholarship benchmark. Since then, we have consistently been above a 3.2 average. Of our 100 members, we have brothers currently competing in intercollegiate athletics for S&T on the track team and soccer teams, while countless others have participated in the past. We also have members who participate in various club teams, such as old-school mining (mucking), volleyball, baseball, and paintball, as well as design teams including the S&T Satellite, Chem-E Car, and Formula Teams. SigEp has grown to be one of the premier student organizations by helping men develop the academic, mental and physical habits that lead to a balanced life. We are looking for the most balanced men on campus to be the future of this organization.
To qualify for the Balanced Man Scholarship you must attend Missouri S&T in the 2018-2019 school year and submit the application by May 1, 2019. If you are selected as a semi-finalist, we will be contacting you for an interview.
