The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi today marks the 50th anniversary of the incorporation of the Phi Kappa Phi Foundation. The Foundation was established in 1969 to help provide financial support for Phi Kappa Phi’s mission of recognizing and promoting academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engaging the community of scholars in service to others. Among other things, the Foundation helps support Society award programs through donations.
Because of the generosity of donors, more than $17 million in awards has been distributed to students, Society members, chapters and institutions around the world. Distributions to date include:
“Phi Kappa Phi has provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime by helping aid the cost of study abroad,” shared award recipient Landry Smith. “As a result of this grant, I will be able to focus more on my academics and the culture of Europe, not the financial strain that the cost of study abroad places on a family. I could not be more grateful for how much Phi Kappa Phi cares for and invests in their scholars.”
