Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, and most selective honor society that is comprised of all academic disciplines. Its chapters are located on more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Each year, approximately 30,000 new members are initiated.
Phi Kappa Phi is a global network of the best and brightest students and faculty from all academic disciplines—a community of scholars and professionals - building an enduring legacy for future generations. Only a very select group of students is invited to join this organization.
Membership invitations are mailed in February/March to undergraduate juniors in the top 7% of their class, and to seniors who are in the top 10% of their class. Graduate students must be nominated by a member of the Graduate Faculty and be in the top 10% of their class; the nomination form for Graduate Students may be found here: Graduate Student Nomination Form and Instructions. This form and nominations for the chapter awards described below are due by March 21, 2014. Nominations should be submitted to Jill.Deans@uconn.edu.
