Scholarship and Internship Opportunities

Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest, largest, and most selective all-discipline honor society, will be awarding 50 study abroad grants of $1,000 each. Because Truman has a Phi Kappa Phi chapter, Truman students in any field of study are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Students do not need to be a member of Phi Kappa Phi to apply. To be eligible, students must have between 30 and 90 credit hours by the deadline of Feb. 18, have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5, have at least two semesters remaining in residence at Truman after completing the study abroad experience, and the study abroad program must be taken between May 1, 2008, and June 30, 2009.
