For Non-Members

  • The 2022 Scholarship Applications are now closed. The awards and recipients will be announced in May. 

     

    The Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation is fortunate to have a variety of scholarships for non-members, including several for children of members and some for children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of specific chapters, such as the University at Buffalo, San Jose State, and Long Island University.

    We also offer a scholarship if you are a member of SAM Fraternity and have a child planning a career in aviation.
