Phi Kappa Phi Awards for the First Year of Graduate Study

Each year, The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi awards $345,000 to members entering their first year of graduate study. If you know of a graduating senior or first-year graduate student that is a member of Phi Kappa Phi and has earned less than 10 graduate hours (currently enrolled hours do not count), then encourage them to apply for a ΦΚΦ Fellowship to help fund their graduate education!

Check out this video, to hear from a former Phi Kappa Phi Fellow. For more information, read the Fellowship FAQs or download the Fact Sheet. You’ll also find many helpful resources on our website, including Advice to Applicants, Sample Personal Statements and Sample Work Samples to share with your students.

Applicants will submit their materials to their local chapter by their local deadline. The chapter will then submit one nominee to the national competition by April 15, 2017.
