Giving Tuesday is a few weeks away! On November 27, Phi Kappa Phi will join communities, charities, businesses and individuals across the globe to celebrate a global day of philanthropy dedicated to giving back.

Gifts made to the Phi Kappa Phi Foundation on Giving Tuesday will support the Society’s award programs, which give nearly $1 million each year to deserving students and members. These programs—made possible by supporters like you—help students realize their educational and career goals, from study abroad to graduate school to lifelong learning.

Want to know firsthand how your donations can make a difference? Read the below testimonials from Phi Kappa Phi award recipients:

MalineeNeelamegam 190x255“It is an honor to receive the Dissertation Fellowship from The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. The ABD finish line is challenging and the fellowship will allow me to work towards completing my doctoral journey successfully. Beyond the financial assistance, the fellowship provides doctoral students like me, the motivation and the reassurance of the importance of the work we do.” —Malinee Neelamegam, Dissertation Fellow
Denham Michael 190x255“The Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship will allow me to worry less about the financial burden of attending graduate school and focus more on my specific academic interests. I hope to pay this generosity forward by investing in future generations of students and working to eliminate health inequities as a physician leader. Alleviating the financial stresses associated with pursuing further education provides the opportunity to hone in on the problem I am most passionate about solving: optimizing health care markets for the patients they aim to serve.” —Michael Waitus Denham, Phi Kappa Phi Fellow 
Mullins Etenia 190x255“I am grateful for receiving the Love of Learning Award. This award will not only help me continue my education but also allow me to begin the next steps in my career path. More than the funds, the real honor is the continual service with a dedicated organization. Phi Kappa Phi truly encourages scholarship and success.” —Etenia Mullins, Love of Learning Award recipient  McLaughlin Ian 190x255“If you were presented a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a summer term studying your passion at one of the world's most prestigious non-American universities, would you? And what if it came with a steep price tag? Well, that's exactly the dilemma I was presented with my junior year of college. Phi Kappa Phi's Study Abroad Grant helped me bridge the difference between my current resources and my dreams. I will always be grateful for those who provide this type of funding for purpose-driven, highly-motivated students to pursue targeted international experience.” —Ian McLaughlin, Study Abroad Grant recipient
