Thank you for your interest Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation scholarships. These awards are made possible through the annual gifts of Sig Tau alumni committed to enabling undergraduate members to access higher education. Some of our Sig Tau chapters also offer scholarships for their undergraduates. Contact your alumni association to learn if scholarships are offered at your chapter.
Chapter Fund Grants
The Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation provides thousands of dollars through leadership grants to attend national leadership programs each year to many chapters. Donations made to restricted Chapter Funds provided over $25,000 in leadership grants and scholarships during the 2017-2018 academic year.
Interfraternal Leadership Grants
Chapter members may apply to use Chapter Fund grants to attend Greek Leadership Conferences. These programs place members of Sigma Tau Gamma with members of other fraternities in an exciting and educational environment with inspiring outcomes. Members must be accepted to attend by the NIC to apply for leadership grants.
Individual chapters may use Chapter Funds to raise money for leadership program grants, but also provide academic scholarships to members of their chapter. Investments in chapter funds will only be used to support members of that specific chapter.
Ellsworth C. Dent “Man of the Year” Award
Each year, five outstanding graduates are recognized nationally. From the five, one is selected by the Society of Seventeen as the “Man of the Year,” the highest honor for an undergraduate member of the Fraternity. The “Man of the Year” receives a $1,000 honorarium.
Michael J. Steinbeck Fellowship
The Michael J. Steinbeck Fellowship was initiated in 1987 by Marvin Millsap. Recipients of the Michael J. Steinbeck Fellowship are selected by the Society of Seventeen and presented each year at the national meeting.
