Named Study Abroad Grants

Two Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grants have been endowed by generous donors. Below are descriptions of the Society's named Study Abroad Grants and the contributors who made them possible:

1 McKenzie Study Abroad Grant - Established in 2011 from the generosity of past Society president Wendell H. McKenzie, Ph.D. and his wife Georgie McKenzie, the grant will be given annually to a successful applicant from North Carolina State University. Should there not be a successful applicant from North Carolina State University, the funds will be granted to a successful candidate from another Phi Kappa Phi member institution.

2 Larry Sommers Study Abroad Grant - Former Society president, Larry Sommers of Okemos, Michigan, did not have the opportunity to study abroad as a University of Wisconsin undergraduate in the late 1930’s. His endowed gift to the Society will make such opportunities available for future generations of students to enrich their education.
