The Phi Beta Kappa Society is a leading national advocate for the value of arts and sciences education. Our newest program and scholarship opportunity, Key into Public Service, highlights the wide range of opportunities for arts, humanities, natural science, social science, and mathematics majors to pursue rewarding careers in the public sector.

Each scholar will receive a $5,000 undergraduate scholarship and will participate in a conference that provides training, mentoring, and reflection on pathways into local, state, and federal government careers.

The Society has now opened our 2022 Key into Public Service application cycle for our 2023 cohort of scholars.  Arts and sciences students attending chapter institutions can apply here until January 23, 2023. PBK membership is not a prerequisite. Characteristics of ideal recipients include intellectual curiosity, breadth, and depth of liberal arts and sciences coursework, leadership propensity, and service to others.
