SigEp knows that the transition for graduating high school seniors to college can be tough, and the cost of college can create even more stress. We want to do our part to help. With college around the corner, we wanted to make sure you and the students you work with know that we have more than $300,000 in scholarship opportunities at over 140 campuses nationwide.

To qualify for the Balanced Man Scholarship, incoming students should submit an online application and enroll full-time at any of these institutions for the fall 2023 term (no essay required). Final deadlines vary by school, but the early application deadline for most scholarships is June 1, 2023. Applicants have no obligation to affiliate with or join SigEp to be eligible. This resource is intended to assist with college affordability while introducing students to campus life opportunities.

Volunteer with Camp Smile as a Camp Counselor

My name is Megan Mueller, Schroeder 2020 alum, and I am reaching out to you as a representative of Camp Smile.

Camp Smile is a summer day camp for children aged 5-18 that have visual impairments/blindness and often have additional disabilities. Our camp is located at the Webster Kiwanis Lodge and is supported through the Webster Lions Club.

All campers attend camp at no charge and receive 1-on-1 support daily from a volunteering counselor.

Our organization relies heavily on local high school students who are 13 years or older, responsible, and passionate about helping others.
