Alumnus Sponsors $5,000 Scholarship

Published on April 5, 2018 in News, Foundation

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA – The generosity of others has always helped provide support to Sig Tau Chapters by sending members to leadership conferences like Grand Conclave, bettering the lives and membership experience of undergraduate members, and adding to the development of scholarship, leadership, and citizenship in the men of Sigma Tau Gamma.

Ted Priem, an alumnus of the Beta Delta Chapter of the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, recognizes the importance of giving back to the Fraternity. Ted and Theresa Priem, along with the Priem Foundation,  have created a new scholarship opportunity. Priem graduated with two Bachelor degrees in Psychology and Business Administration, and also attended the Small Company Management Program at Harvard. Priem has had a successful career in sales and business.


“I am thrilled that Ted and Theresa Priem have made this scholarship possible for a member of Sigma Tau Gamma. The generosity the Priem Family has shown and their intention to support an undergraduate member in need of scholarship assistance is truly exemplifying what it means to be a Sig Tau,” Steve Latour, Chief Executive Officer said.

This $5,000 scholarship is now open for applications. Undergraduate applicants must be a full-time sophomore, junior, or senior in good standing of Sigma Tau Gamma. They must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA, demonstrate financial need, and illustrate active participation and leadership in the chapter and campus community.


The recipient will be announced and awarded at Grand Conclave Phoenix this June. The deadline to apply for the new Priem Scholarship is May 15, 2018. To learn more and to apply, click here.
