Upperclassmen Opportunity - The Founder's Scholarship


For those of you who did not have a chance to attend Parents Weekend Nov 11-12, we wanted to ensure that you are aware of an important opportunity for your son and your family.

The Gamma Chi Education Foundation is an entity led by a board of directors comprised of alumni from the Sigma Chi Fraternity at the Univ of Maryland.  Gamma Chi is the name of our Chapter within Sigma Chi.

The Education Foundation has a million dollar endowment, thanks to the sale to the University of the land where our former chapter house was located in College Park, as well as a very generous bequest from a deceased alumnus--Jack Stringer '57.

One of the Education Foundation initiatives is the Founders Scholarship. This scholarship was created in 2016 to incent our upperclassmen, who have distinguished themselves as scholars and leaders in our Fraternity, to live in the Sigma Chi house and mentor our younger members. The Founders Scholarship provides free room and board each academic calendar year to 3-4 of our upperclassmen; a value of close to $12,000/recipient/year.

We will begin to accept applications from our rising juniors and seniors for the 2018-19 school year in January and will announce the winners in March.
