Balanced Man Scholarship
CSU’s local chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp) established the Balanced Man Scholarship (BMS) in 2001 to recognize Colorado State’s finest men, who exhibit overall excellence. Candidates should embody the model established by SigEp’s Balanced Man Ideal, which encourages a balanced lifestyle of Sound Mind and Sound Body, as prescribed by the ancient Greeks.
By adhering to the ideals of Sound Mind and Sound Body, we feel these young men distinguish themselves as models to be emulated. A further respect for the Fraternity’s core values of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love will further distinguish exceptional candidates. The BMS will be used to award these fine young men for their outstanding achievements regardless of their decision to join the chapter.
This merit-based award is given based on the areas that are promoted within the Balanced Man Ideal that the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity strives for: Academics, Leadership, Athletic Achievement, and Community Service. Applicants are not required to join the Sigma Phi Epsilon to be considered nor to be selected as Balanced Man Scholarship winners.
