The ancient Greeks believed in developing a Sound Mind, Sound Body, and Sound Spirit as a path towards a fulfilling life. Sigma Phi Epsilon has adopted this philosophy through the Balanced Man Ideal--to excel not just is academics, athletics, or leadership, but in all endeavors of life--and since 1990 has awarded the Balanced Man Scholarship to some of the most well-rounded incoming students. We seek to encourage and support the further development of balanced men, and would also like to help students achieve their educational aspirations regardless of the continually rising price of education.
As an organization that strives for all-around excellence, we, the California Alpha chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon, seek to recognize UC Berkeley's most exceptional new students entering in the fall semester. As such, we are proud to offer up to $2,500 in total funds through the Balanced Man Scholarship to deserving men who best exemplify a balanced life.
