Sigma Phi Epsilon's ideal of being a “Balanced Man” – living a life dedicated to a sound mind and body – is a widely accepted, universal practice towards living a fulfilling and complete life, regardless of gender. A major part of living such a life is giving back to the community, which SigEp proudly emphasizes in its brotherhood. In accordance with this, The Sigma Phi Epsilon Balanced Man Fellowship seeks to award one community service project proposed by a member of the Columbia Community, which articulates a well thought out proposal that critically engages with the values of Sigma Phi Epsilon (Virtue, Diligence and Brotherly Love), while displaying a capacity for leadership, entrepreneurship, and initiative.

The individual awarded will receive $3,500 to be used to accomplish the goals set forth in their proposal. Project entries should be limited to philanthropic endeavors and, in April 2016 (date TBD), Sigma Phi Epsilon will hold a ceremony and reception to introduce the recipient's project and formally receive the Fellowship.

To apply: All CU undergraduate students are welcome to apply by downloading the application at this link and returning to the Vice-President of Philanthropy and Community Service, David Medoff, at: dlm2182@columbia.edu. Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2016.
