Once per biennium, The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi Scholar and Artist Awards honor individuals who demonstrate the ideals of the Society through their lifelong activities, achievements and scholarship. Each awardee receives a recognition citation, life membership and a $1,000 donation to a nonprofit cause of their choice.
First presented in 1974, the Scholar Award recognizes excellence in teaching, research and public service. The Artist Award was established in 1983 to recognize the achievements of those who, in addition to their outstanding scholarship, have displayed talents in the broad realm of the arts—creative, graphic, performing, visual and/or fine arts.
