The scholarship was established through the Epsilon Phi Impact Campaign (EPIC) lead by a committee of Sigma Chi alumni in conjunction with the Foundation. To date, more than $70,000 has been raised from Sigma Chi alumni to create the award, and the Foundation has matched the gifts with an additional $20,000. EPIC also includes fundraising toward the new Sigma Chi House located in Southeast’s Greek Village. The campaign continues through June 30 of this year.
The renewable scholarship will be awarded to a full-time initiated member of the Sigma Chi fraternity that has demonstrated involvement with the Epsilon Phi Chapter. First preference is a student living in the Sigma Chi house located at 1421 Show Me Drive. Second preference will be given to a student living in H Building at Greek Housing, and third preference will go to a student living in another location on campus. Recipients must live on campus during the term in which the award is presented. They also must be in good academic standing with the University and the Epsilon Phi Chapter of Sigma Chi with an overall minimum 2.7 grade point average.
The Sigma Chi Scholarship Committee in conjunction with the Greek Life director will select the recipient.
