The Balanced Man Scholarship
The Ancient Greeks believed that a body’s good health was vital, as it is the vessel of the mind. The mind houses your humanity, and, therefore, exercise of the mind is just as important as exercise of the body for full maturation and development. The purpose of a man’s time on earth is to live the best, balanced life and to explore the unexamined facets that make us better men.
The Balanced Man Scholarship is a scholarship SigEp offers to incoming, male freshmen at UW-Platteville. The scholarships are awarded to applicants who show they best follow in the Sound Mind and Sound Body ideals and four pillars of Leader, Scholar, Athlete and Gentlemen that SigEp holds in high regard. These include scholastic, community service, and extra-curricular activities. Undergraduate members, parents, local volunteers, and alumni from UW-Platteville have raised and donated over $40,000 in scholarship support over the years. There is no obligation to join Sigma Phi Epsilon in order to apply or receive the Balanced Man Scholarship.
The men of Sigma Phi Epsilon wish you the best of luck as you begin your college career.
