Elisabeth Estep Awarded Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant

Alfred University student Elisabeth Estep of Horseheads, N.Y., recently was awarded a Study Abroad Grant worth $1,000 from The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, one of the nation's oldest and most selective academic honor societies. Estep is one of 50 students nationwide to receive the award.

Currently a second-year student majoring in biology, Estep will use the grant to study abroad in Valladolid, Spain, at Universitas Castellae.

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. Each recipient will receive $1,000 to be applied toward travel abroad.

Established in 2001, Phi Kappa Phi’s Study Abroad Grant Program has awarded more than $775,000 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.
