From “The Daily Beacon”:
Seven incoming first-year students received the Balanced Man Scholarship last Thursday.
Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity (SigEp) awards the scholarship based on academic achievement, campus and community involvement and recipients are not required to join a fraternity or go through fraternity recruitment. SigEp has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to incoming students since 1991.
At the awards ceremony, SigEp also announced that over $50,000 would be given to current chapter members for the 2018-2019 academic year. Over one million dollars has been granted to members of SigEp at UT since 1986.
SigEp helps men strengthen their character, build leadership and interpersonal skills and learn to develop healthy, lifelong relationships.
Interim Chancellor Wayne Davis was present at the ceremony and discussed undergraduate research opportunities and importance of getting involved with UT organizations.
“The SigEp awards presented today are a prime example of what being a Tennessee Volunteer is all about.” Davis said at the ceremony. “Congratulations to the Balanced Man Scholarship recipients and their families. I hope you have a great experience as a student at the University of Tennessee.”
Associate Vice Chancellor of Alumni Affairs Lee Patouillet and Director of the UT Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life Kelly Phillips were also present at the ceremony.
