Nu Sigma Phi Scholarships are awarded semi-annually to members of Nu Sigma Phi Fraternity and/or students of Kean University on the basis of contributions to Nu Sigma Phi, scholastic achievement, leadership ability, and involvement with Kean University and the surrounding communities.  All undergraduates who will be full time students of Kean University or active members of Nu Sigma Phi, Alpha Chapter, for the semester following the award of Scholarship are invited to apply.

Scholarships are awarded only to Kean University students and must be used to meet direct educational expenses such as room, board, tuition, and books. Monetary scholarships are awarded based upon several key components which incorporate equal and balanced criteria.

Scholarships will be awarded for both the Fall and Spring semesters and applied to the cost of the following semester. All monies will be paid directly to Kean University Foundation for the benefit of the award recipients.
