The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi

Who we are
Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, most selective all-discipline honor society. Membership is by invitation only to the top second semester juniors, seniors, graduate and professional students.

What we do
Phi Kappa Phi members demonstrate the Phi Kappa Phi motto, "Let the love of learning rule humanity". Scholarship and contributions to the community at large are the mark of Phi Kappa Phi

Why students should join
In addition to the recognition of scholarship and hard work that you will receive at initiation, Phi Kappa Phi members may apply for honors and awards such as the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship, Literacy Grant, Study Abroad Grant, Love of Learning Award and Scholar or Artist Award. Phi Kappa Phi offers networking and career seeking opportunities. And national corporations such as Dell and Avis provide discounts to members.
