Phi Kappa Phi Suspends Study Abroad Grant Program

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society, announced it was suspending its Study Abroad Grant program temporarily, according to a recent press release from earlier this week.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus, Phi Kappa Phi has been monitoring the situation closely. Based on the current uncertainty regarding travel, the Study Abroad Grant program has been suspended temporarily. Applications and letters of recommendation that have already been received for the 2020 competition will be kept on file and reviewed in the upcoming academic year (Fall).

Phi Kappa Phi inducts around 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni each year. The Society has chapters at more than 300 colleges and universities in North America and the Philippines. Membership is by invitation only to the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students and 7.5 percent of juniors.

The Society awards 75 Study Abroad Grants of $1,000 each annually to help support undergraduates as they gain new perspectives and get unique academic experience by studying abroad.
