Sigma Phi Epsilon
Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded at Richmond College, now the University of Richmond, on November 1, 1901, on the Cardinal Principles of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. Today,the Fraternity has grown to nearly 350,000 lifetime members, including 13,900 undergraduates on 200 campuses across the United States.
About Our Chapter
At Montana State University’s Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter, we pride ourselves in our national fraternity motto, “This fraternity will be different.” Our brothers are dedicated to academic success and character development, aided by our Balanced Man Program. Additionally, our membership is open to all male-identifying individuals and all members are of equal status from the day they join. We are a substance-free organization that does not tolerate hazing or harassment. Our chapter works to benefit the campus and community through service, individual projects, and organizational leadership. You will find yourself amongst one of the strongest networks of college men that strive for positive growth and development at Montana State University.
This summer our chapter sent a delegate and an alternate to represent our chapter at the national Sigma Phi Epsilon legislative conference in Denver, Colorado. In years past, our chapter led a coalition of chapters across the nation to make all SigEp chapters substance-free. This year, Montana Beta continued our legacy of national influence, sponsoring legislation to address the environmental impacts of our national fraternity, adopt a formal land acknowledgment nationally, and charge the national diversity, equity, and inclusion committee to explore issues of gender throughout Sigma Phi Epsilon.
We seek membership in the brightest young men at Montana State University. Our chapter currently boasts an average GPA of 3.85, and members can be found actively engaged across campus. You will encounter SigEps involved with the Honors College, advocating in the VOICE Center, serving in the ASMSU student government, organizing Service Saturdays, and excelling in all walks of student life at Montana State University. Though COVID-19 has altered our operations over the past year and a half, our chapter has been known to dedicate our time towards Service Saturdays, Eagle Mount, Habitat for Humanity, and raising money for Special Olympics Montana through the Polar Plunge. Aside from academics and extracurriculars on campus, you will also find our brothers mountain biking, rock climbing, white-water kayaking, and shredding the slopes at Bridger Bowl, among other recreational pursuits.

The Balanced Man Scholarship
Every fall we offer the Balanced Man Scholarship to freshmen men because that is how we are able to meet the most outstanding future leaders at Montana State University. We want to make it clear that all male-identifying incoming freshmen are eligible for this scholarship. There is no requirement to join the fraternity to be eligible to apply for or to win this scholarship. That being said, strong applicants for this scholarship are often an excellent fit within the membership of our fraternity. This scholarship process helps us meet individuals who will fill out our freshman class for MSU's chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
The mission of our fraternity is “Building Balanced Men,” which is achieved through a commitment to Sound Mind and Sound Body. We are looking for applicants who live their lives with purpose, exemplifying servant leadership, community involvement, and academic performance. Above all else, we seek individuals committed to continual personal growth. After reviewing the applications for this scholarship, we will host interviews immediately upon returning to campus in the fall. The application closes on August 27th, follow this link to apply today!
