The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi


This is North Dakota State University's Phi Kappa Phi honor society web site. Phi Kappa Phi is not a fraternity or sorority—it is an honor society. Membership is not granted to all, but must be earned. Phi Kappa Phi is the equivalent in land-grant universities like ours of Phi Beta Kappa. While that organization is open to liberal arts students, the land-grant spirit of Phi Kappa Phi emphasizes the equivalence of all disciplines. That is, whether you are a liberal arts major, an engineering major, a business major, or in fact any major, you are eligible for membership in Phi Kappa Phi. Nomination a real mark of achievement, and offers a number of benefits. In addition to this recognition for superior academic performance, members may apply for a variety of scholarships, fellowships, study abroad awards and internship grants. Affiliation with members around the world offers opportunities for leadership and networking. As well, The Phi Kappa Phi Forum, PKP's magazine, offers fascinating reading, insights into social, cultural and scientific issues you won't find anywhere else.

Note: membership in Phi Kappa Phi is the only honor society designation that will appear on your university transcript.
