Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant Deadline Approaches

By Lorena Roberts on March 6, 2019

If you’re a current college student, chances are, you’ve heard of Phi Kappa Phi. As one of the oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines, Phi Kappa Phi has chapters on more than 300 colleges and universities in North America and the Phillipines. Membership is by invitation only and usually the top 10% of seniors and graduate students are invited, along with 7.5% of juniors.

According to a recent press release, Phi Kappa Phi’s study abroad grant deadlines are quickly approaching. If you’re thinking about sending in an application, you only have until March 15, but you could be awarded one of seventy-five $1000 grants.

These grants are intended to support undergraduate students who are seeking experiences in their academic fields. While you don’t have to be a member of Phi Kappa Phi, you must be attending a college/university that has a chapter of the Honors organization.

“I am so grateful to Phi Kappa Phi for helping fund my travel to Spain,” said Andi Dahmer, a recipient from Western Kentucky University. “This experience will allow me to live the Spanish language as well as make lasting relationships with the members of my host family, friends in the community, and the students whom I teach.”

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 application period for students to apply for a $1,000 Study Abroad Grant is currently open until March 15. For full eligibility requirements and application instructions, visit www.phikappaphi.org/studyabroad.
