To provide financial assistance and encourage the focus of education with the undergraduate brothers of the Florida Chi Chapter, the Florida Chi Alumni Association of Sigma Alpha Epsilon in Tampa Bay, Inc. has founded scholarship funds with the financial support of generous alumni.
The Florida Chi Scholarship Program: The focus of this program centers on the Florida Chi undergraduate brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon who display the most outstanding academic achievement. Each applicant must show enthusiastic commitment to the highest ideals expressed in “The True Gentleman” including exceptional personal integrity while leading chapter, campus activities, & notable philanthropic service.
Intended to promote leadership skills in undergraduates for use in their chapters and the world beyond, the John O. Moseley Leadership School curriculum is designed to instill both personal and chapter leadership development through three key dimensions: (1) the practical art of administering the affairs of an effective chapter, (2) teaching the principles of leadership, and (3) the Fraternity itself.
The Florida Chi Leadership Grant – This grant program targets the Florida Chi undergraduate brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon who have been elected/appointed by the Florida Chi chapter in a leadership position. The undergraduate chapter brother that will receive a grant must hold an office/key committee in the following year, and has demonstrated outstanding leadership in the Florida Chi chapter, Tampa Bay community and the University of Tampa.
The University of Tampa students, faculty and staff volunteer 150,000
hours at 150 organizations throughout Tampa Bay. Students also combine academic study with service in the community in select courses offered across the curriculum. The student run P.E.A.C.E. Volunteer Center and the Greek life community coordinate most service activities.
The National office of Sigma Alpha Epsilon offers scholarships in 14 different categories to students including recognition in risk management, modern history, medicine, and community service, leadership, academics, education, and campus involvement. Last year, a total of 49 graduate and undergraduate students throughout the United States received $73,000 in scholarship money and grants. (Numbers vary every year)
