Annually, the Committee on Awards of the University of the Philippines, Manila identifies individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to teaching, research, leadership and extension works. During the 10th anniversary celebration of UP Manila as an autonomous unit of the university in 1991, Mu Sigma Phi received its first Most Outstanding Student Organization award. In 1995, after receiving the award for five consecutive years (1991-1995), the fraternity was elevated to The Hall of Fame, the first organization to be recognized as such.
Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO)
The Search aims to recognize, reward, and encourage youth organizations all over the country with programs and projects that help their communities. TAYO hopes to inspire more young people to find innovative solutions and to challenge status quo through the organizations to which they belong. As movers in their communities, they can make a difference in the lives of the people they desire to serve and in the cause they choose to espouse. The Search for the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations of the Philippines is organized annually by the TAYO Awards Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the National Youth Commission and the Office of Senator Bam Aquino.
Ten Outstanding Youth Organizations (TOYO)
In 1989 the Manila Mayor’s Office launched a search for the “Ten Outstanding Youth Organizations” (TOYO) for the whole of Metro Manila. The UP Manila Office of Student Affairs nominated the Fraternity along with several campus organizations. Altogether 50 youth organizations became finalists including veteran socio-civic groups from NGO’s. Screening and verification processes were very stringent. The awarding ceremonies required all finalists to attend with the winners withheld until the final announcement. The first TOYO awardees consisted of 6 community-based and four campus-based organizations. The Mu Sigma Phi was the only UP-based winner and was cited significantly for its innumerable community oriented projects not only for Manila but also for the whole country. The Fraternity would be nominated and win the TOYO in 1991 and 1992 again pushing the Manila Mayor’s Office to elevate the Fraternity into the Hall of Fame- the first to be bestowed such an accolade.
Most Active NGO Partner in Luzon
The Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor under the Fidel V. Ramos administration declared Mu Sigma Phi as the Most Active NGO Partner in Luzon in Helping the Urban Poor in 1997 besting out all other organizations. The fraternity was recognized for the numerous medical and surgical missions and other health services intended especially for the underserved particularly those affected by the Mt. Pinatubo disaster. The national citation was awarded by President Ramos himself.
