Phi Beta Kappa and the W.A. Franke Honors College have established a travel fund to support Franke Honors students who have the opportunity to present papers at regional, national, and international professional societies and associations. The Phi Beta Kappa travel fund will award two grants of $300 each annually. The Phi Beta Kappa travel grants are funded jointly by Phi Beta Kappa and the W. A. Franke Honors College. The Franke Honors College administers the Phi Beta Kappa travel fund.

Students will submit an abstract of their paper or presentation, a letter from the society or association confirming their invitation to participate, a letter of support from a faculty member familiar with the student's scholarly work, and contact information (local address, phone number, email address). Because of the limited amount of funding available through the PBK travel fund, students' expenses will only be partially funded. Students should expect to seek funding from other sources; ability to secure funding from other sources or organizations will be viewed positively.

  • Eligibility: Be active members of the W.A. Franke Honors College. Be juniors or seniors in class standing. Have a 3.6 cumulative
    grade point average or higher.
  • Award Amount: Two grants of $300 annually
