Applicants must be high school seniors who will be entering as freshman students at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in the fall of the year the award is offered. Each applicant must also have achieved a minimum 3.0 GPA through his junior year of high school. Prospects from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

Basis of Selection

We are seeking young men who are intellectually, physically, and morally capable of leadership in any field. The scholarship selection committee of Sigma Nu fraternity considers a large number of attributes in the selection of Pursuit of Excellence scholars. The distinctiveness of this honor comes from a vast array of attributes considered. Intellectual strength is an obvious prerequisite, but is not considered in mere isolation to other qualities. We seek young men who have demonstrated a good blend of character, intellect and good humor to receive this honor.

Applications are due Sunday, September 12th 2021
