The Balfour Award contains three levels of distinction: chapter, province and international. The process of conferring the different Balfour Awards is progressive, as an award winner progresses from one level to the next.
To apply for the Province Balfour Award, a Chapter Balfour Award winner is required to submit his Province Balfour Award application to his Grand Praetor.

The International Balfour Award has been presented annually since the 1929 to 1930 academic year, when Paul Hagemann, WASHINGTON (ST. LOUIS) 1930, was recognized as the inaugural recipient. The committee that oversees the award selects the individual who they believe to be the Fraternity's most outstanding graduating senior based on his achievements in scholastics, campus and community involvement, and Sigma Chi involvement.
