Brothers Remembered, Brothers Honored Award

The Alpha Sigma Brothers Remembered, Brothers Honored Award (Classes of 1965-1970 Award) recognizes a graduating or recently graduated member of Alpha Sigma of Chi Psi who has displayed excellence in academic accomplishments and has contributed citizenship, leadership, and service to the Alpha, the university, and the community. The recognition includes a financial award provided by the Alpha Sigma Foundation to support the recipient’s post-undergraduate education.

The award has been generously endowed by brothers of the graduating classes of 1965–1970 to memorialize deceased brothers of this era. Many of these late brothers deserve commemoration for their excellence in the forms that the award honors in the recipient, but the award is in memory of every one of the deceased of these classes. Alpha Sigma brothers from these classes distinguished themselves during their years at the university as student body president, editor of the Daily Tar Heel, Phi Beta Kappas, Morehead Scholars, members of the Order of the Golden Fleece, members of the Order of the Grail, student leaders fighting to abolish racism and the Speaker Ban, and varsity soccer players. After graduation, their achievements included a Rhodes Scholarship, a Fulbright Scholarship, service in Vietnam, US Supreme Court clerkships, and leadership in numerous professions.

Award recipients are selected annually by a committee designated by the Foundation. In selecting a recipient, the committee shall consider factors including, but not limited to: (a) the overall quality of the application, (b) the academic, business, or professional experience provided by the graduate program, (c) the civic or public service aspects of the graduate program, (d) the financial assistance required by the applicant to participate in the graduate program, and (e) the applicant’s contributions to the Alpha, the university, and the community. The committee might interview applicants to facilitate its decisions.
