The Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity created the Balanced Man Scholarship in an attempt to reward young men who lead well-rounded, balanced lives. We strongly believe in the development and cultivation of a sound mind, a sound body, and a sound spirit. SigEp seeks to prepare students for the rigors of the “real world.” This scholarship is awarded to those who best embody the concept of the Balanced Man.
The Balanced Man Scholarship process takes place each summer during June and July. For details about the process click here. To access the Balanced Man Scholarship application click here. These documents are updated for 2012.

Of the bonds he created within SigEp, Sloan said, “My best friends in the world are from all parts of the State and nation.
