The Balanced Man Scholarship is awarded to incoming college freshmen who exhibit academic excellence, outstanding leadership skills, and a commitment to balanced health and well-being. Regardless of if they become members of Sigma Phi Epsilon or not, all males have the opportunity to win this scholarship. The mission is simple: find balanced men in our community and develop them into leaders. SigEp's idea of a Balanced Man is one who exhibits not only mental acuity, but develops a sound body as well as strong morals. We believe that the best ways to reinforce these traits are through leading by example and preparation by focusing on academics, participating in health and wellness routines and developing a community of philanthropy and service to others.
The golf tournament is designed to fund not only this scholarship, but also scholarships for chapter members to attend SigEp leadership continuum events like Ruck Leadership Institute, Carlson Leadership Academy and Grand Chapter Conclave. 100% of the money raised during the tournament will go directly to these opportunities, and the proceeds will be split between UT and USF.
