Students often inquire about the relative benefit of accepting nomination for college honor societies. Some of the best advice for students considering this question entails having the student consider the kind of benefits and activities available locally, and whether or not these are personally meaningful to the student.
In addition to joining a vibrant community of intellectually-motivated people, membership in Phi Kappa Phi affords student access to funding to support lifelong learning and artistic development. Each year, Phi Kappa Phi awards more than $1 million to outstanding members and chapters.
The Texas A&M University chapter of Phi Kappa Phi has the opportunity, as part of this process, to nominate a student for the Phi Kappa Phi Graduate Fellowship. This competition provides 51 – $5000 awards and 6 – $15,000 awards for members entering their first year of graduate or professional study.
