Alum earns fellowship from Phi Kappa Phi
A 2013 graduate of UW-Stevens Point has been awarded a fellowship worth $5,000 by The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi — the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.
Devin Christensen, who received bachelor’s degrees in philosophy and economics from the UW-Stevens Point, is continuing his studies in political science at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is among 57 students nationwide to receive a Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship.
Since its creation in 1932, the fellowship program has become one of the society’s most visible and financially well-supported endeavors, allocating $345,000 annually to deserving students for first-year graduate or professional study. Currently, 51 fellowships of $5,000 and six of $15,000 are awarded each year.
The selection process for the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowships is based on the applicants’ evidence of graduate potential, undergraduate academic achievement, service and leadership experience, letters of recommendation, personal statement of educational perspective and career goals, and acceptance at an approved graduate or professional program.
