2011-12 Scholarship Report

  1. 1. ‘11 - ‘12 SCHOLARSHIP REPORT The Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation
  2. 2. Dear Fratres and Friends:It is an honor to share with you this report about the Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation’swork to support access to higher education and recognize scholastic achievement.During the 2011-12 fiscal year we awarded 128 scholarships and 82 awards basedon outstanding academic accomplishments. These scholarships and awardshelped make a difference for 210 students on 49 campuses. All of this was madepossible through generous contributions from loyal fratres and friends of SigmaAlpha Mu.We are especially pleased to report the first three recipients of the Glazer FamilyJewish Studies Scholarships were awarded this spring. This new fund offers schol-arships (currently $5000 each) to fratres pursuing a major or minor in Jewish Stud-ies who are active in the Jewish community. The Glazer Family Scholarships werecreated by Fras Irving and Jay Glazer of our Indiana University chapter.The Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation awarded 36 percent more scholarship dollars in2011-12 to 19 percent more qualified applicants than in 2010-11. This means weare awarding larger scholarships to more students. While we are making progressto ensure that no fratre has to leave school due to lack of funds, we are seeingincreased need for financial assistance from student fratres.Our work to help student fratres, and sometimes a son or daughter of a frater, ismade possible by alumni and friends who support our endowed scholarship pro-gram. The following pages share just some of the stories of those students thatwe are striving to assist.Fraternally & Sincerely,Aaron M. GirsonExecutive Vice President Mu Theta-The USC chapter 2
