Graduate Fellowship Program

The ECU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi national honor society is pleased to invite applications for the 2014 Graduate Fellowship Competition. These funds can be used to support first-year graduate or professional study at an accredited university in the U.S. Applicants must be members of Phi Kappa Phi or slated to be initiated at the ECU ceremony in April. Applicants must not have previously attended any graduate school. The ECU chapter selects one winner who receives $1500.00 from the chapter. That person's materials are then sent forward to the national competition. The national society awards 6 fellowships of $15,000 each and 51 of $5000 each. Our chapter's student winners have been very successful in past national competitions.

The deadline for submissions to the ECU chapter is Monday, March 3, 2014. Application forms and additional information are available from the PKP website at www.PhiKappaPhi.org/Fellowship. Competitive applicants usually have strong grade point averages and standardized test scores.

**Students who are Brody early assurance recipients can only apply if they have taken the MCAT exam because  a copy of standardized test scores like the MCAT, GRE, LSAT, etc. is required. One copy of the application and supporting documents should be submitted by March 3 to Dr. Holly Mathews, Department of Anthropology, Flanagan 207. Send inquiries for further information to mathewsh@ecu.edu. Once a chapter winner has been selected, we will work with that person to put together the final copies for submission to the national competition.
