The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi has announced an extension to apply to its Fellowship program. The new deadline is April 30, 2020.
“In light of the closure of colleges and universities due to COVID-19, we recognize the need to allow additional time not only for Fellowship applicants to assemble materials before submitting to their local chapter, but for chapter officers to review applications before forwarding their endorsed candidate to the national competition,” said Mary Todd, Executive Director. “We hope this deadline extension will reduce the concerns we have seen about timely submissions of applications in these uncertain times.”
Established in 1932, the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship has become the Society’s signature award, providing funding for the first-year of graduate or professional study. This year’s program awarded 50 fellowships of $8,500, six $20,000 Marcus L. Urann Fellowships, named for the Society’s founder, and two new awards at $35,000 each, the 1897 Fellowship and the Sherrill Carlson Fellowship.
Phi Kappa Phi Fellowships are part of the Society’s robust awards program, which gives nearly $1 million each year to outstanding members and students on chapter campuses through study abroad grants, dissertation fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development, member and chapter awards, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives.
