Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society, is currently accepting applications for its Graduate Research Grant and Dissertation Fellowship Award, according to a recent press release.

Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi inducts approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni annually and has chapters on more than 325 select colleges and universities in the U.S. and the Philippines. Membership is by invitation only to the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students and 7.5 percent of juniors though faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction also qualify.

Introduced as a pilot program in 2018, the Graduate Research Grant provides up to $1,500 to 20 eligible members who are enrolled in a graduate program. These grants offer funding for research in support of career development opportunities. To see full eligibility requirements, visit

Since 1932, Phi Kappa Phi’s awards program has recognized members and students on its chapter campuses for outstanding academic achievement. Each year, $1 million is awarded through programs — and last year, more than 350 individuals were recognized.

The Society’s mission is “To recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engage the community of scholars in service to others.” For more information, visit
