Southeastern Phi Kappa Phi seeking applications for endowed scholarship
Contact: Christina Chapple
HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is continuing to accept applications for its new scholarship, established last year in honor of the chapter’s 50th anniversary.
Students have until April 10 to apply. The recipient will be announced at the chapter’s annual banquet on May 2.
To qualify for the $250 per semester scholarship, endowed at the “Dean’s Level” through a $10,000 donation by the chapter to the Southeastern Development Foundation, an applicant must be an active Phi Kappa Phi member who is a full-time student with a minimum 3.5 grade point average and is “of moral character that exemplifies the spirit and intent of Phi Kappa Phi.”
Recipients, who will be chosen by a scholarship selection committee, can retain the scholarship for two semesters if they continue to meet the selection criteria.
An application form is available on the Southeastern Phi Kappa Phi web site, www.selu.edu/phikappaphi.
To build upon the scholarship’s initial endowment, the chapter is inviting members to make additional contributions. Contribution forms, including a payroll deduction form for Southeastern employees, are also available on the Phi Kappa Phi web site.
