“The best part of Phi Kappa Phi is their recognition of their members' achievements. Not many organizations continue to offer opportunities for members after undergraduate graduation,” said Abigail Messinger.

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi—the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society—is currently accepting applications for its Love of Learning Award and Literacy Grant programs until Sunday, April 1.
The Literacy Grant Program, established in 2003, was created to provide funding to Phi Kappa Phi chapters and members for literacy initiatives that reinforce 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. In 2017, Phi Kappa Phi funded 14 literacy projects in communities throughout the United States and as far away as Mozambique, Africa.
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 give awards 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 best part of Phi Kappa Phi is their recognition of their members' achievements. Not many organizations continue to offer opportunities for members after undergraduate graduation,” said Abigail Messinger, recipient of a 2017 Love of Learning Award. “Phi Kappa Phi keeps their members in mind at all educational and professional levels.”
The application period for both of these award programs is currently open until April 1, 2018. For more information including eligibility requirements and application instructions, please visit http://www.phikappaphi.org/awards.
Since 1933, Phi Kappa Phi’s award programs have recognized members and students on its chapter campuses for outstanding academic achievement. Currently, $1.4 million is awarded each biennium through programs that last year recognized more than 350 individuals.
