Balanced Man Scholarship

The Balanced Man Scholarship is a funded endowment, established by Virgil S. Boucher, class of 1932 in appreciation of his Sigma Phi Epsilon experience to assist young men attend Monmouth College.


Selection criteria for this award include but are not limited to: academic achievement, sports and extracurricular involvement, leadership, moral character, superior drive to succeed and any accomplishment that exemplifies self-awareness.


Our chapter welcomes and encourages every young man to apply. Our quest is to recognize the most exceptionally balanced men on campus, and anticipate

awarding (1) $1,000 and (2) $500 scholarships to the most balanced freshmen following Monmouth College's Matriculation Ceremony each fall.


The Balanced Man Scholarship in no way represents a commitment or requires applicants or recipients to join our fraternity. This scholarship is merely a celebration of the Balanced Man ideals that Sigma Phi Epsilon has been founded upon - the presence of a Sound Mind in a Sound Body.


Our chapter and alumni will perpetually carry the vision of Virgil Boucher '32, to honor the accomplishments of outstanding young men in their quest to earn their bachelors from Monmouth College. If you would like to find out more on the scholarship, or about this outstanding organization, please feel free to contact our Balanced Man Steward directly.
