The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi—the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines—today announced the recipients of a 2023 Love of Learning Award. The $1,000 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.
“Congratulations to our Love of Learning Award recipients! Their unwavering commitment to the pursuit of knowledge is an inspiration to us all and their dedication to lifelong learning is a testament to the values we hold dear at Phi Kappa Phi.” said the Society Executive Director and CEO, Dr. Bradley R. Newcomer.
Established in 2007, the Love of Learning program, which gives 200 awards annually, doubled its funding this year and saw a 50% increase in applicants. 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 award programs have 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 $1.3 million is awarded through programs that recognize nearly 500 individuals annually.
