Each year the ASU chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi selects one representative of the university to compete for national fellowships. These $5000 awards are highly competitive, but ASU students have won these in the past.
Eligible students must have applied to be a full-time student in a post-baccalaureate program for the next academic year (2008-2009), but have not earned graduate credit prior to that time. The field of study is open to any graduate or professional area.
The application will consist of a personal statement and career goals, transcripts and test scores demonstrating academic achievement, and letters of recommendation.
Completed applications should be sent to Tom Crute, Department of Chemistry and Physics before the deadline of Feb. 1, 2008.
