Summary of each of the MD Beta Scholarship Funds:
Mark Palmarella Balanced Man Scholarship
Brother Mark Palmarella was a brother of SigEP MD Beta and was instrumental in helping Maryland Beta become one of the best chapters on campus through recruiting Balanced Men. Brother Palmarella passed away in 2017. In honor of his contributions to the chapter and the love all the brothers had for Mark, Maryland Beta has decided to name our version of our national scholarship after Mark. Maryland Beta presents the Mark Palmarella Balanced Man Scholarship each year to an outstanding freshman at the University of Maryland who espouses our values and exemplify the Balanced Man Ideal. Through the Balanced Man Scholarship, the chapter recognizes the best and brightest of the incoming freshmen class while also setting a positive example as one of the leading campus organizations at the University of Maryland.
MD Beta Leadership Fund
Established by our past Chapter Counselor, this scholarship fund is used to support the leadership activities of our undergraduate brothers. This fund is used to help provide scholarships for undergraduate brothers to attend SigEp Leadership Continuum Events such as Carlson Leadership Academy (CLA), Ruck Leadership Institute, and Conclave. Additionally, it can also used to provide scholarships to attend other Leadership events such as the Undergraduate Fraternity Institute (UIFI) through the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and to help brothers participate in leadership activities and service learning projects such as helping build houses with Habitat for Humanity in Clemson, South Carolina in addition to rebuilding communities in New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy, and in New Orleans years after Hurricane Katrina.
