2013 Foundation Scholarships
$5,000 Scholarship

Mr. Adam J. Strong, Sigma Epsilon (Indiana Univ.-Purdue Univ. Fort Wayne) '12
  • "As a charter member of the Sigma Epsilon chapter, it is been my unexpected privilege to take an active role in a starting chapter. In this process, I have come to be very grateful for all the help that I have received as an individual and as a member of a larger whole. From our big brother chapter at Ball State University to the national fraternity, I have received support and brotherhood that I never expected would be possible. It is furthermore my most sincere honor to be a recipient of further support from the Sinfonia Educational Foundation. This scholarship will not only help me immensely in my individual endeavors, but it will also help me to be the best member and leader that I can be. I would like to thank the SEF for their continuous support of not only myself, but also my chapter, the fraternity as a whole, and the common good of music in America."
$2,500 Scholarship
Mr. John W. Fleming, Beta Iota (Albion) '11
  • "Like many, if not all Sinfonians, my time as a collegiate brother of the Beta Iota chapter (Albion College) evokes incredibly strong memories. While recovering from life-threatening surgery, spending time with, indeed simply being in the presence of, my brothers sustained me. In much the same way, the support that I have received over the past two years from the SEF has been overwhelming. Not only has its support helped keep me at my alma mater, it has allowed me to be a part of the chapter that I love."
$1000 Scholarship
Mr. Kevin P. Lenker, Lambda Phi (Mississippi State) '11
  • "When asked about our fraternity, there are many instances and examples that show how the Sinfonia enriches a man spiritually, mentally, and even physically. Through the generosity of donors and staff of the Sinfonia Education Foundation, I can now proudly say that Iíve profited financially from joining this great brotherhood. This award releases those long held financial burdens that have plagued both myself and my parents and will enable me to continue to attend local, provincial, and national events. I am so thrilled to be bringing this award back to my chapter and province and using my success as a way to motivate others to uplift themselves and their fellow man through the Sinfonia. Not just as a future music educator but also as a current collegiate, I will always endeavor to find my place among men and use music and true brotherhood as my guiding tools to accomplish every goal that I set."
$1000 Christopher Patterson Scholarship
Mr. Frank Kaufhold, Iota (Northwestern) í11
  • "Sinfonia has opened so many doors for me and given me an opportunity to give back to the community that I love. From events held on Northwestern's campus to Mills Music Missions across the area, this scholarship allows me to spend my time worrying about the success of these events as opposed to my personal finances. I can better focus on the positive experiences of brothers and members of the community as a result of the generosity of the Sinfonia Educational Foundation."
