The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi today announced its 2021 Literacy Grant recipients. The grants of up to $2,500 were awarded to 12 Phi Kappa Phi members across the nation.
The Literacy Grant Program, established in 2003, is part of the Society’s robust awards program, which gives more than $1 million each year to outstanding students and members through study abroad grants, graduate fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development and member and chapter awards. Drawing from a multidisciplinary society of students and scholars from large and small institutions, the grants help fund projects ranging from traditional reading initiatives to those fostering learning in cultural, digital, health, historical literacy and beyond.
The 2021 recipients and their respective projects are:
“Phi Kappa Phi is pleased to support these worthwhile and wide-ranging literacy programs. We applaud the efforts of our Phi Kappa Phi members who identify needs in their communities and seek to help in a variety of ways through these projects,” said acting Society Executive Director, Traci Navarre.
The winning literacy projects were selected for a grant based on a number of criteria including the project’s scope, student and community involvement, impact, duration and ability to achieve success.
