Mar 13, 2018

The deadline to apply for a 2018 Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship is April 16, 2018. Phi Kappa Phi will award six fellowships of $15,000 each and 51 fellowships of $5,000 each to students nationwide.

Since its creation in 1932, the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship has become the Society's signature award, allocating $345,000 annually to deserving students for first-year graduate or professional study. The competition is open to all active Phi Kappa Phi members who have applied to enroll as a full-time student in a post-baccalaureate program of study during the upcoming academic year.

“I am incredibly humbled and honored to be selected as a Fellow of Phi Kappa Phi,” said Rosalyn Stilling, recipient of a 2017 Fellowship. “I am thankful to have support for graduate studies as I continue to follow my passion for literature and the positive social change it can incite. With the help of Phi Kappa Phi, my dream of pursuing a career in writing and research is one step closer to becoming a reality.”

The selection process for a Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship is based on the applicant’s evidence of graduate potential, undergraduate academic achievement, service and leadership experience, letters of recommendation, personal statement of educational perspective and career goals, and acceptance at an approved graduate or professional program.

Each active Phi Kappa Phi chapter may submit one candidate from among its local applicants to compete Society-wide for a fellowship. The national deadline for chapters to submit an applicant is April 16, 2018. Chapter deadlines vary.
