Today, the Kappa Sigma Fraternity Military Heroes Campaign announces a grant in the amount of $100,000 towards the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund Scholarship-Leadership Award Program.
This money will be used to create two new Scholarship-Leadership Awards. The Military Heroes Campaign Trustees requested that the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund establish a named Scholarship for Brother Justin Constantine. Brother Constantine served in Iraq where he was severely injured during an enemy sniper attack. His awards for service in Iraq include the Purple Heart, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and the Combat Action Ribbon. Additionally, Kappa Sigma proudly presented Brother Constantine with the Fraternity’s 23rd Golden Heart Award which is given for valor, bravery, and courage in service.
The second scholarship will be established in the name of the Military Heroes Campaign. The Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign was designed to honor and aid the thousands of wounded military veterans returning from active duty. With the support of both undergraduates, alumni volunteers, friends and family, Kappa Sigma has successfully raised more than $1,000,000 since the creation of the Campaign in 2007.
Kappa Sigma is pleased to announce that these awards will be presented for the first time this Founders’ Day, December 10, 2017, to worthy brothers who have faithfully served in either the United States or Canadian military.
Founded in 1919 by Brothers of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund is the oldest college fraternity Foundation and has awarded nearly $5 million to deserving Kappa Sigma undergraduates across the United States and Canada. The Endowment Fund exists “to support the charitable and beneficent purposes of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity” and is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt foundation. The Endowment Fund provides essential support for the Fraternity’s top educational and leadership priorities.
