Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation supports and rewards academic excellence.


All Sigma Alpha Mu candidates who achieve a 3.75/4.0 grade point average or higher for courses taken in the academic term during which they were candidates and are initiated will be recognized as members of the Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation’s Young Scholars Program. Young Scholars will receive a certificate and a foundation check in the amount of $500.


If the new member has the required GPA, is a full-time student at the chapters host institution, and is in good standing, he should go to for and complete the young scholar application. He will need to upload a copy of his transcript.


Young Scholars are recognized on our website and in Foundation publications.


Also the chapters with the most Young Scholars will receive an award of $1000 at the end of the academic year.
