Are you a high school senior or a current college undergraduate who believes in developing both your mind and body as a way to live a complete life? Are you looking for a scholarship that recognizes your achievements inside and outside of the classroom? 

Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp), the nation’s largest college Fraternity, is awarding over $225,000 during the 2015-2016 academic year with its Balanced Man Scholarships. The Balanced Man Scholarship awards students who exhibit academic excellence, demonstrate leadership skills, and commit to their health and well-being. The Ancient Greeks believed in developing a Sound Mind and a Sound Body as the way to live a fulfilling life. SigEp adopted this philosophy with the Balanced Man Ideal and since 1990 has awarded the Balanced Man Scholarship to some of the best students coming to campus. 

We believe that recognizing students who exhibit balance and all-around excellence is one way to promote this important ideal. Therefore, we are offering scholarships at Florida Atlantic University for the Fall 2016 through Spring 2017 Academic Year.
