Ethan Chapin

MOSCOW, ID. — The Sigma Chi fraternity has created a scholarship fund for Ethan Chapin, a member of the fraternity who was killed along with three other University of Idaho students over a week ago.

“The Ethan Chapin Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to honor the memory of brother Ethan Chapin, IDAHO 2025, who entered Chapter Eternal following the tragic events of Sunday, November 13 in Moscow, Idaho,” The Sigma Chi Foundation website reads.

The scholarship will be given to an undergraduate member of the Gamma Eta Chapter every year to recognize Chapin’s legacy.

“We join the Gamma Eta Chapter in remembering a young man who was deeply loved and respected, as well as extend our deepest condolences to the families, friends and loved ones of Ethan, Xana Kernodle, Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen,” the website reads.

Over $6,000 has been raised for the scholarship so far, with the goal of raising $25,000.
