Don’t let your student miss out! The deadline to apply for a study abroad grant from The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is Wednesday, February 15, according to a recent press release.
Phi Kappa Phi will award 50 $1,000 grants to students nationwide, designed to support undergraduates (members and non-members), that seek to expand their knowledge and experience in their academic fields. The organization awards the grant twice a year: 50 in the spring and 25 in the fall.
The nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society, Phi Kappa Phi gives 75 study abroad grants annually to students on its chapter campuses, awarding more than $775,000 since its inception in 2001.
Your student does not have to be a member of Phi Kappa Phi to apply, but they must attend an institution with an active chapter. The application period to apply for a $1,000 study abroad grant will remain open until Wednesday. Send your student to www.phikappaphi.org/studyabroad for full eligibility requirements and application instructions.
The Society awards $1.4 million each biennium to qualifying students and members through graduate fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development, member and chapter awards, and grants for local, national, and international literary initiatives.
