The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi

The Honor Society of  Phi Kappa Phi will award 60 Fellowships of $5,000 each and 40 Awards of Excellence of $2,000 each to members entering the first year of graduate or professional study. Recipients will also receive a one-year membership into the Society. Additionally, Phi Kappa Phi will award 50 Study Abroad Grants of $1,000 each to qualified applicants.

To apply for a Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship, applicants must be an active member of Phi Kappa Phi or have accepted membership by June 30 of the application year. Applicants should also have applied to enroll as a full-time student in a post-baccalaureate program of study for the current academic year, preferably at an accredited American institution of higher learning. Accredited international institutions are acceptable.

Selection is based on the applicant's promise of success in graduate or professional study, as evidenced by academic achievement, including transcripts, honors and awards, relevant research experience, standardized test scores and samples of creative work; service and leadership experience, on and off campus; letters of recommendation; personal statement and career goals; and acceptance at an approved graduate or professional program.

The Study Abroad program is designed to help support applicants as they seek knowledge and experience in their academic fields by studying abroad. The competition for the grants is open to Phi Kappa Phi members and non-members in all fields of study who attend an institution with a Phi Kappa Phi chapter; have a minimum of 30 credit hours (or equivalent) and no more than 90 credit hours (or equivalent, including all AP, Credit by Exam, transfer credits, etc.) by the deadline; have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale; have at least two semesters (or equivalent) remaining in residence at their home institution after completing the study abroad experience; study abroad in the academic year; must have been accepted into a study abroad program (provide the letter of acceptance on an official letterhead as part of your application); and the study abroad plan should relate directly to the applicant's academic preparation, potential career choice and commitment to the welfare of others.
