This fall, 64 Delta Sigs will receive a helping hand from the Delta Sigma Phi Foundation when it comes to paying for their education. In July 2016, Delta Sigma Phi Foundation announced its 2016-2017 McKee Scholarship recipients.
Since 2009, these scholarships have provided much-needed resources for brothers seeking either undergraduate or post-graduate degrees. These funds are made possible through will bequest to the Foundation from brother Hensel McKee, University of Washington ’30, which provided just over $4.3 million to the Foundation.
This year, the Foundation created new scholarship levels with differing dispersement amounts and tying the scholarships to Delta Sig’s ideals of being men of Courage, Action and Excellence.
Congratulations to these men!
