About the Award
The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi currently awards 54 Fellowships of $8,500 each, six at $20,000 each, and two at $35,000 each to members entering the first year of graduate or professional study. Each of the 300-plus active Phi Kappa Phi chapters across the nation may select one candidate from among its local applicants to compete for the Society-wide awards. Established in 1932, the Fellowship Program annually provides funding to first-year graduate students who are pursuing post-baccalaureate degrees across all academic disciplines. Endorsed by their local chapter, Phi Kappa Phi Fellows go on to study at some of the nation’s top graduate schools. In the past, nominees from BYU have done quite well in this competition.
