Today’s college students are facing an ever increasing strain on educational funding with increased tuition.  This leads students to rely more on student loans, increased work loads and stress on their studies.  This also causes many students to overlook Greek life as a positive impact on their lives and their overall college experience.

The Sigma Pi Educational Foundation offers a variety of scholarship for undergraduate and graduate studies to help our members remain competitive in school and the Greek Community.  We encourage alumni to consider endowment scholarships for their own chapters or to contribute to a fund that is already in place.
