Graduate Fellowship Program
The ECU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society invites applications for the 2013 Eldeen Pearce Graduate Fellowship Award. This award is presented by the chapter each year to one outstanding senior planning to attend a graduate or professional school after graduation from ECU. The chapter winner receives a plaque and a check for $1500 to support graduate study and is then entered into the national Phi Kappa Phi competition for fellowship awards of $5000 each and awards of distinction for $15,000 each. Successful applicants should have outstanding grades, very good standardized test scores (GRE, MCAT, etc.), and a record of service to the university and the community. They must be entering their first year of graduate or professional study, not having been previously enrolled. Applications are available online at the national website: www.phikappaphi.org. The chapter deadline for the receipt of all materials is March 6, 2013. Please note this is earlier than the national deadline. We need time to select our chapter winner and to prepare the materials to send forward. Applicants must submit the application, three letters of recommendation and copies of transcripts and standardized test scores to Dr. Holly Mathews, Chair of Student Awards Committee, Department of Anthropology, Flanagan 207. For more information, contact Dr. Mathews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**a special word to students accepted for early admission to Brody School of Medicine. Brody does not require early assurance students to take the MCAT, but if you have not taken it or another standardized test, you cannot compete for the Phi Kappa Phi graduate fellowship as copies of standardized test scores must be submitted.
