Scholars in Residence Program

Sigma Phi wishes to increase its recognition and rewards for scholarly excellence, while continuing to promote the educational benefits of participating in Sigma Phi as part of the college experience.

Program Description
2014-2015 Application
Application is Due on March 31, 2015

Key Elements
Benefits of this program are available to members of each Sigma Phi chapter, who are enrolled full time, who maintain a minimum GPA, and who live in the house for the entire academic year.

Each academic year, the Sigma Phi Viele Trust will award a $500 scholarship to each initiated undergraduate Sigma Phi member who:
  1. Earns at least a 3.25 Grade Point Average in both of the prior two semesters during which they were either a pledge or initiated member, and
  2. Lives in the chapter house for the entire current school year.

The measurement period in terms of the GPA qualification is defined as the previous academic year's spring term and the current academic year's fall term.

The residence requirement period is the entire current academic year, i.e. previous fall semester and current spring semester.

Awards will be determined each academic year in February for payment shortly thereafter.

All award payments will be sent to the active chapter or alumni corporation treasurer, as appropriate, for application to the awardee’s Sigma Phi financial obligations (if any) and, when completely fulfilled, to the awardee to use as he sees fit.
