The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi today announced the recipients of a 2021 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.

“For nearly 125 years, the motto of Phi Kappa Phi has been its guide – let the love of learning rule humanity. We are pleased to support these members who embody the Society’s motto by funding their lifelong learning endeavors,” said Traci Navarre, the Society’s acting executive director.

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 more than $1 million is awarded through programs that recognize more than 425 individuals annually.
