The deadline is drawing near to apply for one of 62 Phi Kappa Phi Fellowships ranging from $8,500 up to $35,000 each to members entering the first year of graduate or professional study. Though the national deadline is April 15, students must apply through their local chapter and each one has a unique local deadline prior to that date. Check with your chapter for your chance to join the list of recipients like Amanda Campbell.

Campbell graduated from the University of Memphis with a bachelor's degree in history and African/African-American studies. She was active in the University of Memphis’ honors college, serving as a college ambassador for three years and serving on the Honors Student Organization’s executive board.

Campbell will pursue graduate studies at Harvard Divinity School in theological studies in history of Christianity. The $35,000 fellowship will help support her as she continues to move forward with her schooling. “I look forward to engaging questions of religion, race, and memory in a rich interdisciplinary environment at Harvard Divinity School. Receipt of the Sherrill Carlson Fellowship provides financial freedom to pursue these questions,” she said.
