“Receiving a scholarship from Sigma Chi means so much to me. I have never had anyone that could help me financially, so I have always had to rely on myself and make do to the best of my ability. Sigma Chi has shown me in several ways that I no longer have to rely on myself for everything. They have shown me a true family and a true brotherhood and it doesn't matter if times are hard or perfectly fine. This award has lifted a huge burden off of my shoulders, but more importantly, it reminds me again that as I climb this mountain called life I no longer climb it alone.”

DJ JONES, Valdosta State 2013


The Sigma Chi Foundation seeks to recognize undergraduate brothers who have shown outstanding values-based leadership, maintained strong academic performance and who have demonstrated financial need through the General Academic scholarship.

The application for the General Academic scholarship is open to undergraduates from any Sigma Chi chapter.
