To Build the Whole Man, a person must strive for improvement in 4 areas:
This Four-Fold Process was a cornerstone in the beliefs of FarmHouse's Founders as it continues to be for each new member and the alumni before them. However, the Whole Man does not stop at just bettering one's self, but instead strives to build up those around him as well even when challenges present themselves. This "Whole Man" is illustrated in an excerpt of our Object:
"Men elected to our membership are considered to be of good moral character, to be high in scholarship, to have the capacity for meeting and making friends, and to give promise of service to their fellowmen and to the world. To be and become such may at times require a sacrifice of time, pleasures and comforts."
The Illinois Chapter of FarmHouse Fraternity has established the Four-Fold Man Scholarship to honor young men who are striving to better their communities and themselves by "Building the Whole Man." We will be awarding (2) $1000 scholarships to deserving first time attending male students who plans to pursue an undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
To be eligible you must be a male student who will be attending the University of Illinois for the first time during the next fall semester. All majors are encouraged to apply.
Note: First-time students are considered to be high school seniors beginning their freshman year or students transferring to the U of I.
Application Process: The application process for the Four-Fold Man Scholarship involves two steps: the written application and interview. Applicants wishing to be eligible for the scholarship must first submit the written application by March 31st, 2017, which can be found on the next page. Finalists will then be selected based on their applications and invited to interview with a panel of current members and alumni on April 1st, 2017. The winners of the scholarship will then be notified shortly after. Finalists who are unable to attend the interview date will be asked to conduct a phone interview.
