Jack Hoda of Petal, Miss., has been awarded a Study Abroad Grant worth $1,000 from The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi — the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Hoda is one of 25 students nationwide to receive the award.


Currently a junior majoring in English at The University of Southern Mississippi, Hoda will use the grant to study abroad at The University of Exeter in England.


The selection process for a study abroad grant is based on the applicant’s academic achievement, campus and community service, relation of travel to academic preparation and career goals, a personal statement, letters of recommendation, and acceptance into a study abroad program. Each recipient will receive $1,000 to be applied toward travel abroad.


Established in 2001, Phi Kappa Phi’s Study Abroad Grant Program has awarded more than $800,000 to undergraduate students. In addition to these grants, the Society awards $1.4 million each biennium to qualifying students and members through graduate fellowships, funding for post-baccalaureate development, member and chapter awards, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives.
