A program launched by the SEF in 2010, Chapter Funds are a way for a chapterís alumni to directly support the programs of the chapter at their alma mater. Once an agreement is in place, chapters will work with their alumni to identify projects and generate support for their Chapter Fund. On an ongoing basis, chapters can apply for grants from their Chapter Fund in support of their charitable and educational programs. For more information about this program, click here.
In its very first year, this program provided $1,000 to assist collegiate Sinfonians in attending the Fraternityís summer leadership Conclave. This event brought together almost 200 Sinfonians for four days of intensive education in leadership and personal excellence, diversity awareness, and musical collaboration.
These grants are restricted to collegiate Sinfonians in good standing, and each grant provides up to 50% of total travel expenses to the Leadership Institute held in Evansville, IN. Applications are available during specified times only.See past recipients...
2014 Leadership Institute Grant Application Form
Until this year, matching grants were offered by application to collegiate chapters and provinces of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity in support of valuable local programs, such as musical festivals, residencies, symposiums, and the composition of new music by emerging and established American composers. In order to increase the level of support for these local initiatives, these grants have been replaced by the new Chapter Funds program. Since 1975, the Sinfonia Educational Foundation has awarded over $40,000 in matching funds to chapters throughout the country to help these activities.See past recipients...
