Scholarship

Thanks to the generous contributions of many Sigma Chi Brothers to the Sigma Chi Foundation, Participants are awarded a scholarship of $2700 to cover the full cost of their experience. Horizons and the Sigma Chi Foundation will pay for all on-site food, lodging, and meeting costs. Any incidental expenses will be the responsibility of each attendee.

Participants begin their experiences in an on-site immersion of whole-brained learning that engages their minds and bodies. 

As a participant, you will explore the inner territories of leadership:

  • How leadership is directly linked to your values and character
  • How you can incorporate high-minded values into a lifelong practice of leadership
  • How you can discover and utilize your full potential

A team of Sigma Chi alumni faculty who have been carefully chosen and intensively trained to guide the Horizons program, and who share your commitment to self-improvement, will guide you. You will learn from your guide, the other undergraduates, and from yourself.

Horizons will unfold amid the splendor of Snowbird, Utah, an ideal setting for outdoor adventure, interactive learning, and inspired reflection. It will push you to think and act differently. The experience is just a first step, it is the beginning of a personal journey that will change you, and in so doing, change our world.
