March 28 deadline for senior full-tuition scholarships

pbkKey_V_RGB-(4)PULLMAN, Wash. – Students who will be seniors in 2016-17 are invited to apply for scholarships covering tuition and fees for that year from Washington State University’s Gamma Chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. The deadline is 5 p.m. Monday, March 28.

Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest academic honors organization, recognized for fostering excellence in liberal arts and sciences. Ten percent of U.S. colleges have a chapter, and elected members must be in the top 10 percent of their class. The WSU chapter was established in 1928.

In the past five years, the Gamma Chapter has awarded scholarships to 14 seniors from a variety of majors. Also, each spring the chapter invites new members to join the society; in spring 2015, 74 students became members of Phi Beta Kappa.

Scholarship applicants must be certified into a major in the College of Arts and Sciences, Murrow College of Communication, human development, neuroscience or School of Molecular Biosciences. Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher through fall semester 2015. Details and forms are available online at http://PhiBetaKappa.wsu.edu.

For more information, contact Robert Ferguson – chair of the Phi Beta Kappa chapter scholarship committee who works as a strategic assessment data officer for WSU Libraries – at 509-335-2520 or ferguson@wsu.edu.
