2017 Scholarship Recipient
Tristan Davis – Epsilon Iota Chapter – Florida State University

“Coming from a family which has traditionally struggled to make ends meet, I’ve always tried my best to work for financial aid – to avoid putting the burden on my family for my education. The Sinfonia Educational Foundation scholarship I received has provided me with a major source of relief in that respect, freeing me to focus on my education without the added stress of worrying about my finances. The SEF has provided me an opportunity to grow as a student, a future educator, and as a Brother in Phi Mu Alpha. I am grateful to the SEF for their support and the impact they have made on me.”

2015 Scholarship Recipient –
Jule Streety – Alpha Upsilon – University of Arizona

“In September 2015, my father passed away. This caused many challenges for me academically, and there was a point where I was unable to do work or attend classes. Whenever I would get frustrated and question myself, I remembered that the SEF had enough faith in me as a Brother to deem it appropriate to help me financially. Having that support in school helped me push through and overcome that difficult time. I ended up finishing the semester with straight A’s and was accepted into a Master’s Degree program in Musicology at the University of Arizona. I will forever be grateful to the SEF for supporting me, and will always remember the impact it had on my life.”
