Balanced Man Scholarship

Deadline: June 1, 2020

 

To support our mission of Building Balanced Men, the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity (“SigEp”) proudly brings the Balanced Man Scholarship to the University of Cincinnati.

 

During the 2020 – 2021 school year, SigEp Chapters will award over $225,000 at more than 160 campuses across the country through the Balanced Man Scholarship program. We believe that recognizing students who exhibit balance and all-around excellence is a way to promote this important ideal. Each year, our chapter at the University of Cincinnati awards up to $4,000 in scholarships to incoming freshman students. 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.

 

Why is SigEp different? The Balanced Man Program offers a no pledging, no hazing, college experience, focused on personal and professional development. SigEp offers full membership from day one. Members learn to live their best lives through unique and rewarding programming tailored to fit their needs and prepare them for the life journey ahead. By developing a Sound Mind in a Sound Body, SigEp members acquire the tools to build their success.

 

SigEp is founded on the principle that it will always strive to be different. SigEp is the largest and most intelligent national fraternity in the country, boasting 285,000 lifetime members, 15,000 undergraduate members and over a 3.0 average GPA. At the undergraduate level, SigEps have consistently outperformed every fraternity in academics. SigEp alumni established the first Educational Foundation of any fraternity. 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 will be looking for the most balanced men on the University of Cincinnati’s campus to be the future of this organization.

 

To qualify for the Balanced Man Scholarship, you must attend the University of Cincinnati in the 2020-2021 school year and submit the application by June 1st, 2020. Please apply online at https://cincinnati.sigep.org/bms/.
