Additional Awards and Recognition
The Oustanding House Corporation Award recognizes the Fraternity's house corporation that has best served its undergraduate chapter in the previous year. Applications are due April 30.
The Sigma Chi Foundation is pleased to recognize honorably discharged or currently serving members of the armed forces with its Military Service Recognition Pin. The White Cross that we wear is an emblem of sacrifice, and the virtues displayed through one’s service to country brings honor to name of Sigma Chi.
The International Sweetheart of Sigma Chi is a woman who serves as a role model for all of our brothers, and is our Fraternity's liaison to non-members throughout the world. She must possess an understanding of the values and ideals for which the White Cross stands, and exemplify these values and ideals in her daily life.
A person of good character illustrates trustworthiness, respect, personal responsibility, fairness and citizenship. Whether a member donates his time and energy to a worthy cause, acts as a role model for the youth of his community or simply goes out of his way to help others, Sigma Chi recognizes this as an act of Character-in-Action™. Such members, who also lead with integrity, are good candidates for the Mark V. Anderson Character-in-Action™ Leadership Award.
Grand Consul’s Citations are presented to undergraduate or alumni members who perform outstanding service to the Fraternity or a chapter, or to designated non-members in special circumstances. The Grand Consul selects the recipients, who receive certificates to acknowledge their honor.
Certificates of Appreciation are presented upon the request of a chapter, Grand Officer or Fraternity body to a chapter officer or member of the Fraternity. The certificates recognize service as an officer of an undergraduate or alumni chapter, or service to a chapter of the General Fraternity.
In 1974, Sigma Chi established the Edna A. Boss Houseparent Award at the suggestion of the Delta Upsilon Chapter at Kansas State, which provides financial support for the award. It is named for Edna A. Boss, who served as the Kansas State chapter's housemother for 20 years.
This award recognizes the Parents Clubs that have significantly contributed to the Sigma Chi experience of their sons and their respective undergraduate chapters. An annual award, it honors the support of parents for a chapter's operations, as well as the membership size and longevity of the club.
