Phi Kappa Phi Logo

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi—the nation’s oldest and most selective all discipline honor society—is currently accepting applications for its Love of Learning Award and Literacy Grant programs until Saturday, April 1.

Awarded twice a year, Love of Learning Awards help fund post-baccalaureate professional development for active Phi Kappa Phi members including graduate and professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, career development, travel related to teaching and research, and more. Phi Kappa Phi will award grants of $500 each to 100 members during Session A of the program. To be eligible, applicants must have completed their baccalaureate studies by the April 1 deadline.

The Literacy Grant Program, established in 2003, was created to provide funding to Phi Kappa Phi chapters and members for literacy initiatives that reinforce part of the Society’s mission: “to engage the community of scholars in service to others.” Grants of up to $2,500 are available for new and ongoing projects ranging from traditional reading initiatives to those fostering learning in cultural, digital, financial, health, historical literacy and beyond.

The application period for each of these award programs is currently open until April 1, 2017. For more information including eligibility requirements and application instructions, please visit

Since 1933, the Society’s award programs have recognized members and students on its chapter campuses for outstanding academic achievement. Currently, $1.4 million is awarded 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 literacy initiatives.
