Student Awarded Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant


Kaitlyn Johnson was recently awarded a study abroad grant worth $1,000 from the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.

Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Their grants are designed to support undergraduates, both members and nonmembers from campuses that have Phi Kappa Phi chapters, as they seek expanded knowledge and experience in their academic fields by studying abroad.

Johnson is a senior communication disorders major from Wright City, Missouri. She plans to use the grant to study abroad in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. She is one of only 125 students nationwide to receive the award.

The selection process for a study abroad grant is based on the applicant’s academic achievement, campus and community service, relation of travel to academic preparation and career goals, a personal statement, letters of recommendation and acceptance into a study abroad program. Each recipient receives $1,000 to be applied toward travel abroad.

Established in 2001, the Study Abroad Grant Program is part of the Society’s robust portfolio of award and grant programs, which gives $1.3 million each year to outstanding students and members through graduate and dissertation fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives.
