The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society, today announced the Session B recipients of a 2017 Love of Learning Award. The $500 awards were given to 100 Phi Kappa Phi members across the nation.
Awarded twice a year, the Love of Learning Awards are designed to help fund post-baccalaureate professional development for active Phi Kappa Phi members including graduate or professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, travel related to teaching and research, career development and more.
“What all Phi Kappa Phi members have in common is a love of learning, so it’s fitting that the Society should enable learning in a variety of venues,” said Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd. “The Love of Learning Award does just that by supporting members at all stages of their professional careers.”
The selection process for a Love of Learning Award is based on the applicant’s academic achievement, campus and community service, intended use of award funds as it relates to academic and career goals, and a personal statement.
Established in 2007, the Love of Learning Program gives 200 awards annually in support of post-baccalaureate professional development. In addition, the Society awards $1.4 million each biennium to qualifying students and members through study abroad grants, graduate fellowships, member and chapter awards, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives.
