Alpha Rho Memorial Foundation

H. Seger Slifer, E'12 Award


The Senior Award, established in 1924, was subsequently adopted as an annual award in memory of Brother H. Seger Slifer, E'12, who served as President of the Chi Psi National Fraternity from 1961-1967.

The members of the Alpha may nominate a senior member for the award based on "scholarship, activities, fraternal service and Chi Psi conduct." An application recommended by the Trustees of the Alpha Rho Alumni Association will be considered by the Trustees of the Foundation. An award of $250 is available.
