A few weeks back (early December), I wrote a post talking about a scholarship fund that I helped establish for brothers of Sigma Pi Fraternity at Monmouth University. Well, I’m at it again, but this time on a bit of a bigger scale.
I’m proud and excited to announce the creation of The NJ Province Scholarship Fund with the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation. This fund will award an annual scholarship to a deserving brother of Sigma Pi Fraternity who attends school in New Jersey. The exact criteria for the award is listed below:
The NJ Province Scholarship will be awarded to an active, full-time member of any of the active chapters located in the state of New Jersey. This award will recognize the initiated member who most exemplifies the ideals of Sigma Pi through academic excellence, chapter leadership, philanthropic service, and community involvement.
I’m very excited to be working on this fund for many reasons, not the least of which is my own history with student loan debt. If one of my legacies in life can be that I helped start a fund that helped one more kid afford going to college in America’s most expensive state, then I’ll be happy with that legacy.
At this time, we are in the process of raise funds for the scholarship. We’re grateful and happy to take donations in any amount from alumni, friends, family, and local businesses who believe in making college more affordable for New Jersey students. If you’re interested in making a tax-deductible donation to this fund, please contact me and I’ll be more than happy to assist you.
