Phi Kappa Phi’s Love of Learning Awards are designed to help fund post-baccalaureate professional development for active Society members including graduate or professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, travel related to teaching and research, career development and more.
For members like Ebubechi Adindu, a first-year medical student at Baylor College of Medicine, the award can help them reach their goals. Adindu, a 2020 Love of Learning Award recipient, said he used the funds to "aid in the completion of his medical doctorate degree."
Adindu was initiated in 2019 as a senior at the University of Kentucky. "For me, the best part of Phi Kappa Phi is all of the connections and networking opportunities that this honor society has provided," he shared.
Established in 2007, the Love of Learning Program gives 200 awards of $500 each annually in support of members. 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.
"I am extremely thankful to have been awarded the Love of Learning Award. With this award, I promise to try my best to be an upstanding member of this honor society by excelling in my medical school studies," said Adindu.
The deadline to apply is June 30. To learn more about the award and see full eligibility requirements, click here.
