ABOUT STUDY ABROAD GRANTS

Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grants are designed to help support undergraduates as they seek knowledge and experience in their academic fields by studying abroad. The National Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi awards 50 Study Abroad Grants of $1000 each and the SDSU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi awards up to four Study Abroad Grants of $500 each. You are encouraged to apply for both the SDSU and National Phi Kappa Phi study abroad grant programs. Recently, one of our local $500 recipients also received a $1000 National Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant—that’s $1,500 to study abroad! See special instructions for applying for the SDSU Grants below.
