To support our mission of Building Balanced Men, Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity is offering the Balanced Man Scholarship to outstanding young men entering Missouri University of Science & Technology.

We believe that recognizing students who exhibit balance and all-around excellence is a way to promote this important ideal. This semester we will award two $500 scholarships to a student at Missouri S&T. 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 programs 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 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 first or second highest GPA among fraternities 5 times out of the last 6 semesters. SigEp has achieved the All Men’s GPA by more than 0.2 for 12 out of the last 14 semesters. In Spring 2017, our chapter was the only fraternity to finish above the 3.33 campus scholarship benchmark. One fourth of all 4.0 GPA’s achieved by Greek males in Spring 2019 were SigEps. In terms of athletics, SigEp has placed in the top 3 for 4 consecutive years and finished in the top 4 every year since 2008. During the 2018-2019 academic year, SigEp was the FIRST fraternity in the school’s history to place first in both academics and athletics across an academic year. 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 2021-2022 school year and submit the application by December 1st, 2022.
