Kappa Sigma Scholarship

Several years ago, many generous Lambda-Lambda Chapter alumni and friends ofour fraternity provided seed funds to establish an important legacy -- the ‘Kappa Sigma Scholarship Fund’. As of 2008, the corpus value of our fund has grown to over $25,000 and is part of the institutionally managed scholarship endowment of Elon University.

Kappa Sigma became the first Greek-letter organization whose alumni formally endowed an academic scholarship for undergraduate brethren. Because this fund exists, Kappa Sigma undergrads who demonstrate both leadership prowess and academic integrity may apply for valuable scholarship awards that enable them to continue their academic pursuits.

Scholarships are available for award each academic year. Eligible undergraduates must apply for the award shortly after the Fall semester begins. The Scholarship Committee of the Lambda-Lambda Alumni Association reviews all candidate submissions and determines the winner(s) and the dollar amount(s) awarded. Formal announcement and presentation of the Scholarship Award(s) occurs during the Association's Annual Meeting held at Homecoming.

The tally that follows is woefully incomplete, but this list represents just some of the undergraduate recipients:

Peter Donohoe #569 -- $400
Jason Purvis #559 -- $400
Grant Rash #552 -- $500
Jared Rudolph #582 -- $500
Eric Thorp #596 -- $400
Robert Tucker #597 -- $400

Sean Barry #634 -- $150
David Coulter #641 -- $150
Christopher Farnsworth #643 -- $200
Bryan McMinn #607 -- $2,000

Christopher Farnsworth #643 -- $1,000

Jim Frisch #645 -- $1,450

Tyler Graham #662 -- $1,250
Luke LeSourd and Jeff Ouellette
Yale Hoffberg - $1,400

Each year, the earnings from the Kappa Sigma Scholarship Fund become available for distribution to qualifying undergraduate applicants. Our collective sponsorship of this scholarship fund is just one more reason why Kappa Sigma at Elon University continues to be the unqualified campus leader.
