Sigma Phi Epsilon offers new award

A fraternity of firsts, Sigma Phi Epsilon is proud to have offered the Balanced Man Scholarship to an incoming RPI freshman. SigEp, the largest undergraduate fraternity, with over 14,000 members, has been building balanced leaders for our world’s communities since 1901. One way they are doing this is with the Balanced Man Scholarship, which awards an incoming freshman who exhibits academic excellence, demonstrates leadership skills, and commits to a sound mind and sound body. The ancient Greeks believed developing a sound mind and sound body was the only way to live a healthy and fulfilling life, and SigEp has since adopted this mentality.

This was the second year that the Balanced Man Scholarship was offered by the New York Delta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon and is proud to have extended this award to someone who truly exemplified the ideals of the scholarship of SigEp. This student is Heidi Moore ’13 from Guatay, California. Throughout her high school career she was a member of various varsity athletics including swimming, track and field, and soccer. Now, she participates in the Air Force ROTC, as well as various clubs, including water polo. In short, her achievements both inside and outside the classroom attested that she was deserving of this honor.

The scholarship will be offered annually to all incoming freshmen and to learn more about the scholarship please visit
