Abby Robb of New Berlin, Wis., recently was awarded a Study Abroad Grant worth $1,000 from The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Robb is one of only 25 students nationwide to receive the award.
A senior majoring in communication studies and political science at Elmhurst College, Robb will use the grant to study abroad in China.
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.
Established in 2001, Phi Kappa Phi’s Study Abroad Grant Program has awarded more than $800,000 to undergraduate students. In addition to these grants, the Society awards $1.4 million each biennium to qualifying students and members through graduate fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development, member and chapter awards, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives.
