“Men join fraternities – leaders of men join Sigma Chi”

John Wayne, USC 1929

Sigma Chi is a fraternity of men dedicated to the ideals of Friendship, Justice, and Learning. We are returning to our home in the Spring of 2016. We are seeking outstanding young men – leaders – to serve that initiative and be the men to bring that chapter to life. Through the generosity of a farsighted alumnus, Brother Jack Anderson ’48, we have established a scholarship fund through the University to support building a chapter in service to those ideals.

We are seeking to identify and encourage leaders – those men with ambitious purposes, men of honor and good character, and strong students, men who seek to pledge their service to a calling larger than themselves. Leaders in word in action.

If you are seeking a fraternity experience above and beyond the ordinary, with deeper meaning than just a series of social gatherings; if you have what it takes to be a leader, or already are one, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship without delay.

We are offering up to $25,000 in total scholarships, from $1,000 to 2,500 for an individual.

Deadline for submission is Nov. 15, 2015.

Applications may be submitted online at this website, or filled out on the downloadable Word document and emailed to:alphaofsigmachi@yahoo.com

The application process consists of online application, which include one short (250 word) essay component, and a short interview, which are expected to be completed by the end of November or early December.

Applying for or winning a scholarship does NOT mean that you must rush or choose to pledge Sigma Chi.
