Oklahoma City University alumna and graduate student Anna Delony was awarded an $8,500 fellowship from the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.

Delony graduated from OCU in the spring with a bachelor’s degree in economics and returned this fall to pursue a master’s in nonprofit leadership.

The selection process is based on applicants' evidence of graduate potential, undergraduate academic achievement, service and leadership experience, letters of recommendation, personal statements of educational perspective and career goals, and acceptance at an approved graduate or professional program.

Delony is among 58 students nationwide to receive a Phi Kappa Phi fellowship this year. Since its creation in 1932, the Fellowship Program has become one of the society's most visible and well-funded endeavors, supporting students for first-year graduate or professional study. In addition to the fellowships, Phi Kappa Phi’s award programs give nearly $1 million each year to qualifying students and members through undergraduate study abroad grants, grants for literacy initiatives, and member and chapter awards.
