Sigma Alpha Epsilon Legacy Scholarship
The Phi Kappa Iota/SAE Foundation, hereafter referred to as the SAE Foundation, came into existence in early 2001 after the sale of the SAE house to the University. The Foundation was set up with two primary goals in mind. First, to preserve the capital from the sale of the house so that should conditions in the future warrant a return of the Fraternity to campus, resources would be available to buy, build or at least put a significant down payment on a new fraternity house. Secondly, the excess interest from the fund would be used to help descendants of active fraternity members with tuition costs at USU.
