Phi Kappa Phi is currently accepting applications for its 2019 award programs including Fellowships, Study Abroad Grants, Literacy Grants and Love of Learning Awards. These programs provide funding for graduate study, continuing education, professional development, studies abroad and local, national and international literacy initiatives.
Since 1932, Phi Kappa Phi’s award programs have recognized members and students on its chapter campuses for outstanding academic achievement. Nearly $1 million is awarded each year through programs that last year recognized more than 350 individuals.
“Phi Kappa Phi encourages the ‘love of learning’ and supports scholarly, interdisciplinary efforts through direct support and recognition of academic excellence,” said Scott Willard, a 2018 award recipient. “This recognition and support opens doors for members of the Society and encourages continued scholarship.”
Programs currently accepting applications include:
- Fellowships: The Society recently announced an expansion of its Fellowship Program from a total distribution of $345,000 each year to $615,000. Beginning in 2019, 50 Fellowships of $8,500 each, six at $20,000 each, and two at $35,000 will be available to members entering their first year of graduate or professional study. The deadline to apply varies by each Phi Kappa Phi chapter. Contact your local chapter for deadline information.
