OSU Phi Kappa Phi Impact Award

A new OSU-PKP IMPACT award is now available for OSU PKP members!

The Oregon State University Phi Kappa Phi chapter is proud to announce the availability of two NEW $500 OSU-PKP IMPACT awards. These awards were established to support student projects that are congruent with the spirit of the Phi Kappa Phi motto, “Let the love of learning rule humanity”. Student activities can include superior scholarship in any academic discipline but outcomes must have a tangible impact that benefits communities of people. Applicants are recommended to consider the degree of impact and the scale of the community that is being benefited. Teamwork and field work are encouraged.
