OCU Student Earns Honor Society Fellowship

by Rod Jones

Oklahoma City University alumna Theresa Faith Hottel was awarded a $5,000 fellowship from the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.

Hottel received bachelor's degrees in English and film production from OCU. As a Phi Kappa Phi Fellow, she will pursue a Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University in New York City.

The selection process 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.

Hottel 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 well-funded endeavors, allocating $345,000 annually to students for first-year graduate or professional study.

In addition to the fellowships, Phi Kappa Phi’s award programs give more than $1 million each biennium to qualifying students and members through undergraduate study abroad grants, grants for literacy initiatives, and member and chapter awards.
