Our Mission

The Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation at George Mason University funds scholarships and leadership programs that develop college undergraduate and graduate students’ academic, leadership, citizenship, and personal potential. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, family, and friends, the Foundation continues to provide the necessary environments, education, experiences, scholarships, and loans.


The Educational Foundation has also established a scholarship fund to provide recognition, inspiration, financial assistance, and encouragement to the Virginia Mu Alumni Volunteer Corporation (AVC) members and the spouses, children, and grandchildren of AVC members or deceased members.  These awards are presented to outstanding AVC members and family members enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs, professional development courses, or vocational training.

These scholarships help pay for targeted, outcomes-based programs that prepare young men for success. The scholarships and grants are also used to help fund and expand the programs and events that create opportunities to continue to be active in your commitment to the ideals of brotherhood and Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Our brothers’ and volunteers’ educational and life experiences are enhanced through SigEp’s programs and services. These efforts ease the transition to college, enable academic achievement and leadership during college, encourage preparation for life after college, and provide opportunities to stay connected and remain involved.
