Deadline Approaching for the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship Program

Mar 16, 2017

The deadline to apply for one of 57 Phi Kappa Phi Fellowships is April 15, 2017. The Society will award six $15,000 grants and 51 $5,000 grants to students nationwide.

Since its creation in 1932, the Fellowship Program has become one of the Society's most visible and financially well-supported endeavors, allocating $345,000 annually to deserving students for first-year graduate or professional study. The competition is open to all active Phi Kappa Phi members who meet the eligibility requirements

“This Fellowship Program can transform your life by putting a graduate level educational experience within financial reach, and I thank my Phi Kappa Phi advisors for encouraging me to apply,” said Joseph Schartz, a 2016 Fellow. “I encourage any student who is considering graduate school to learn how Phi Kappa Phi can enable you to go above and beyond as a student scholar.”

The selection process for a Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship is based on the applicant’s evidence of graduate potential, undergraduate academic achievement, service and leadership experience, letters of recommendation, personal statement of educational perspective and career goals, and acceptance at an approved graduate or professional program.

Each active Phi Kappa Phi chapter may endorse one candidate from among its local applicants to compete Society-wide for a fellowship. The national deadline for chapters to submit an applicant is April 15, 2017. Chapter deadlines vary.
