Sigma Alpha Mu provides one of the best outlets for personal, community, and nation leadership development. Every year, the Sammies hold a Leadership Conference with its members. A collection of alumni from all different professional backgrounds facilitate the day-long event and discuss leadership with the active chapters. The conference consists of seminars and workshops to build strong leaders both on campus and in the professional world.

As members of Sigma Alpha Mu, students have the opportunity to grow as leaders in a number of supportive communities. Brothers attending those important conferences will receive training in chapter operations, leadership development, risk management, strategic planning and community service.

Those development conferences are hosted in each region of the continent, giving the chapters' current and future leaders a chance to share their wealth of knowledge and experience with each other.


Scholarships and Awards

The Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation will grant over 140 scholarships totaling over $150,000 to members of the Fraternity during this coming academic year. The scholarship application process takes place during the winter months and grants are announced in early March of each year. The application form can be found on both the Fraternity's web site and the Foundation's web site. In addition, new members are eligible for a grant from the Guller Scholarship Fund if they achieve high academic results during their candidacy period.
