As part of Phi Kappa Phi’s mission “to engage the community of scholars in service to others,” Literacy Grants of up to $2,500 are available to Phi Kappa Phi chapters and individual members to fund ongoing literacy projects or to create new initiatives.

The Literacy Grant Program welcomes proposals for projects targeting any age group and ranging from traditional reading initiatives to those fostering learning in cultural, digital, environmental, financial, health, historical literacy and beyond.

Pam Ferguson, with the Methodist College chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, reflected on being chosen for a 2021 Literacy Grant Recipient. "Not only is this the first major award received as a chapter, it is an incredible opportunity for chapter members to remain consistent with the mission of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi as we engage in service to the community in Peoria County, Illinois," she said. The project, The Art of Empowerment: Building Social-Emotional Learning Through Art," focused on supporting students enrolled at the Peoria Regional Learning Center.
