Phi Kappa Phi recently announced the Session A recipients of a 2017 Study Abroad Grant. The $1,000 grants were awarded to 50 students across the nation.
Awarded twice a year, the grants are designed to support undergraduates, both members and nonmembers from campuses that have Phi Kappa Phi chapters, as they seek expanded knowledge and experience in their academic fields by studying abroad.
“Study abroad offers students a valuable learning experience with a culture other than their own,” said Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd. “Phi Kappa Phi is pleased to help open doors to expanded global knowledge and meaningful engagement with different cultures through our study abroad grants.”
The selection process for a study abroad grant is based on the applicant’s academic achievement, campus and community service, relation of travel to academic preparation and career goals, a personal statement, letters of recommendation, and acceptance into a study abroad program.
Established in 2001, the Study Abroad Grant Program has awarded more than $775,000 to undergraduate students. In addition to these grants, the Society awards $1.4 million each biennium to qualifying students and members through graduate fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development, member and chapter awards, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives.
