Pi Kapp Scholars Award

Background

For over eight decades, Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity has been recognizing student leaders for their commitment to academic excellence. The oldest and most prestigious scholarship in Pi Kappa Phi, the Pi Kapp

Scholars Award, is intended to recognize and reinforce the idea that to lead in one’s chapter is to first lead in the classroom.

In addition, President John F. Kennedy often said that fifty percent of a person’s education takes place outside of the classroom. Because of this, applicants’ extra curricular activities are also considered in the award process.

Criteria

Every spring, up to seven juniors and/or seniors are selected by the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation for this award, each receiving $1,000 grants.

To be eligible, an applicant must:

  • Be an initiated member of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity
  • Be enrolled as a full-time JUNIOR or SENIOR at his university
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher
  • Complete the entire application
