Key into Public Service Scholars



Selected from over 600 applicants attending Phi Beta Kappa institutions across the nation, the Key into Public Service Scholars hail from 14 states and three countries. The students represent a broad range of academic interests across the liberal arts and sciences, backgrounds, and institutions. Each scholar will receive a $5,000 undergraduate scholarship and take part in a virtual convening in late June to provide them with training, mentoring, and reflection on pathways into active citizenship in the tradition of Phi Beta Kappa’s founders.
 
The Phi Beta Kappa Society is a leading national advocate for the value of arts and sciences education. Our newest program, Key into Public Service, highlights the wide range of opportunities for liberal arts graduates to pursue rewarding careers in public service and features a new scholarship opportunity.
