Phi Kappa Phi Graduate Fellowship

On behalf of the national Phi Kappa Phi Society, the MSU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi is inviting applications from its current seniors for competitive graduate fellowships. Fellowships are worth either $5,000 or $15,000 for the first year of graduate or professional school. Only 60 Phi Kappa Phi fellowships are awarded annually and each chapter is invited to submit only one nominee. In the past, Montana State University Phi Kappa Phi Chapterís nominees have had an outstanding record of success. The Montana State University chapter nominee has been selected for one of these national fellowships in fourteen of the last sixteen years. The criteria used in the selection process include scholastic achievement, high-standardized test scores, participation in honors and enrichment programs, evidence of leadership, service to the university and community, clarity of career goals, and recommendations by the faculty. If you are currently a senior considering graduate school next year, we invite you to apply. Applications must be completed online then downloaded for submission to MSU chapter co-president president Robert Rydell, 2101 Wilson Hall. To obtain a fellowship application please go to the national Phi Kappa Phi Website: phikappaphi.org/Web/Awards/Fellowship.html.

For additional information please contact Robert Rydell at 994-47929, rwrydell@montana.edu or Ilse-Mari Lee at 406-994-4110, ilselee@montana.edu.

Deadline: completed applications must be submitted to Professor Lee in the University Honors Program no later than March 9, 2014. Applicants will be reviewed by a faculty committee and a finalist selected. Applications are quite extensive and require a minimum of three letters of recommendation so we encourage qualified students to access the online application information as soon as possible.
