With award season in full swing, chapters play a critical role in the success of Phi Kappa Phi’s awards program. Because much information is distributed at the chapter level, we rely on officers and members to help us promote these opportunities.

Here are a few tips to help your chapter continue to promote and encourage participation in the program:


  • Run an advertisement in your campus newspaper or digital signage.
  • Place posters in prominent areas of campus. TIP: Send a few to your school’s Scholarship and Financial Aid department.
  • Ask your chapter’s public relations officer or communications committee to help develop additional promotional materials. TIP: Highlight testimonials from previous award winners.


  • Host an informational meeting.
  • Conduct a workshop on how to apply. TIP: Recruit a previous Society award winner to speak.
  • Remind sophomores and non-members that the Study Abroad award is open to everyone!


  • Publicize the awards on your chapter website and social media.
  • Hand out fact sheets at a campus event.
  • Send an email or e-newsletter.

The national office has created a variety of resources to assist chapters in promoting the application periods. Visit to download fact sheets, posters and more. And don’t forget all the resources in the Chapter Toolkit!
