The deadline to apply for a study abroad grant from The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is Saturday, September 15. Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society, will award 25 $1,000 grants to students nationwide.
Awarded twice a year—50 in the spring and 25 in the fall—the grants are designed to support undergraduate students as they seek expanded knowledge and experience in their academic fields. Interested students do not have to be a member of Phi Kappa Phi to apply, but must currently attend an institution with an active chapter.
“Being awarded the Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant truly opened doors for me into places I had only dreamed of going before,” said Grace Kinner, a Session A recipient from Berea College. “Without receiving the award, I would not have been able to travel to Mexico to better my grasp of the Spanish language, understand nuances of cultures other than my own, and develop the independence that studying abroad requires of you. I am truly grateful to Phi Kappa Phi for believing in me and helping me to achieve my goals.”
Phi Kappa Phi gives 75 study abroad grants annually to students on its chapter campuses. Since its inception in 2001, the program has awarded more than $800,000.
The study abroad grants are part of the Society’s robust award programs, which give nearly $1 million each year 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.
The application period for students to apply for a $1,000 study abroad grant is currently open until September 15. For full eligibility requirements and application instructions, visit www.phikappaphi.org/studyabroad.
