The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi today announced the recipients of a 2020 Love of Learning Award. The $500 awards were given to 200 Phi Kappa Phi members.
Love of Learning Awards are designed to help fund post-baccalaureate professional development for active Phi Kappa Phi members including graduate or professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, travel related to teaching and research, career development and more.
“The Phi Kappa Phi Love of Learning Award is a fitting means of bringing our motto to life — Let the love of learning rule,” said Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd. “We are delighted each year to support the lifelong learning activities of our members through these grants.”
Established in 2007, the Love of Learning Program gives 200 awards annually in support of post-baccalaureate professional development. The selection process for a Love of Learning Award is based on the applicant’s academic achievement, campus and community service, intended use of award funds as it relates to academic and career goals, and a personal statement.
Since 1932, Phi Kappa Phi’s awards program has recognized members and students on its chapter campuses for outstanding academic achievement. In addition to the Love of Learning Program, Phi Kappa Phi awards graduate and dissertation fellowships, study abroad grants, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives. Each year $1 million is awarded through a program that last year recognized more than 350 individuals.
