The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi—the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society—today announced the recipients of its 2022 Fellowships. The fellowships, totaling $649,000, were awarded to 62 of the nation’s top scholars at institutions with an active chapter of Phi Kappa Phi.
Established in 1932, the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship has become the Society’s signature award, providing funding for the first year of graduate or professional study. This year’s program awarded two awards at $35,000 each, the 1897 Fellowship and the Sherrill Carlson Fellowship; six $20,000 Marcus L. Urann Fellowships, named for the Society’s founder; and 54 fellowships of $8,500 each.
“We look forward to our fellowship program each year as it represents one of our signature efforts. Awards are what we do at Phi Kappa Phi. Our Fellows represent some of the most promising graduate students in the nation and we are pleased to recognize their academic excellence and proudly partner with our local chapters to support these emerging scholars as they continue their academic journeys,” said Society Executive Director and CEO, Dr. Bradley R. Newcomer.
The 2022 class of fellows represents students from more than 60 colleges and universities across the nation. The recipients—drawn from all academic disciplines—are pursuing post-baccalaureate programs of study ranging from science and engineering to arts and humanities.
The selection process for a 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 in an approved graduate or professional program.
Phi Kappa Phi Fellowships are part of the Society’s robust portfolio of award and grant programs, which gives $1.3 million each year to outstanding members and students on chapter campuses through study abroad grants, graduate fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development, member and chapter awards, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives.
