    Andy Dickson Memorial Scholarship


    Created by Andy's family & alumni of the Phi chapter in memory of Andrew 'Andy' Dickson (Phi '83), a member who exemplified the Sigma Alpha Mu ideals and was always there as a friend and brother. In his honor, this $2,500 scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate who best exemplifies Andy’s traits of friendship, brotherhood, leadership, and dedication. Leadership, both in the chapter and on campus, is a key consideration. Preference may be given to students from Oklahoma, where Andy was raised.


    To be considered for this scholarship, an undergrad student must be nominated by a peer from his chapter. This is separate from our other scholarship applications. An e-mail will be sent to the frater nominated, asking him to complete the application. For more information about Andy & this scholarship, click here.
