About the Scholarship

Are you an incoming UMass freshman 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? SigEp is offering you a scholarship of up to $750.

The Balanced Man Scholarship rewards students who exhibit academic excellence, demonstrate leadership skills, and commit to their health and well-being. In 1990, Sigma Phi Epsilon adopted the Balanced Man Ideal — a philosophy based on sound mind and sound body — and since then has awarded the Balanced Man Scholarship to some of the best students on campuses around the country. SigEp awards Balanced Man Scholarships at over 180 chapters nationwide. At UMass Amherst, we believe that recognizing students who exhibit balance and all-around excellence is one way to promote this important ideal.

The Massachusetts Alpha Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon is offering scholarships to elite incoming University of Massachusetts-Amherst male students. The scholarship will be awarded to the students who best exemplify the ideals of the Balanced Man, and show a strong commitment to personal and academic development. First place prize is awarded $750, Second $500, Third $250, and the following finalists will be awarded gift cards. Awards will be presented at the Balanced Man Scholarship Banquet during the fall semester of 2017.
