Phi Kappa Phi Award Programs

In a continuing effort to recognize and encourage academic achievement, The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is pleased to offer two awards programs for undergraduates the Phi Kappa Phi Internship Support Grant Competition and the Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Support Grant Competition. Both competitions are open to qualified members and nonmembers in all fields of study.

While the Internship Support Grant is designed to support you as you seek knowledge and experience in your academic field by working outside of the academic setting, the Study Abroad Support Grant is designed to provide support as you seek knowledge and experience through studies abroad.

Four $1,000 Study Abroad Support and four $1,000 Internship Support grants will be awarded in each of Phi Kappa Phi's five regions. This represents 40 grants totaling $40,000 that will be awarded to undergraduates!
