Each year, generous donations from our alumni and friends make it possible for the Sigma Chi Foundation to grant academic scholarships and awards to our deserving undergraduate and graduate brothers and sweethearts.
Providing scholarships and academic awards furthers the Foundation’s goal to promote academic excellence and volunteerism. We proudly award brothers who show outstanding leadership, academic motivation and commitment to their chapters and communities.
During the 2023 to 2024 fiscal year, thanks to the Donor-Scholar Initiative, as well as the Thomas Cowan Bell Chapter Challenge program, 310 individuals were recognized specifically by the Foundation with awards totaling $463,300.
Awards include undergraduate general academic scholarships, chapter sweetheart scholarships, military service awards and graduate scholarships in international business, engineering, medicine, general academic studies, media and law. Additional awards supported by the Foundation include the International Balfour Award, International Sweetheart, Daniel William Cooper and Legion of Honor recipients.
