Celebrating greatness in the areas of liberal arts and sciences, the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society champions freedom of thought and lifelong curiosity. Honoring the brightest undergraduates in these disciplines from almost 300 top schools in the nation and granting lifelong membership, they connect members to a network of high achievers and equip them with the tools needed to become leaders in their fields.
Only 10 percent of universities in the United States have Phi Beta Kappa chapters, with only 10 percent of graduates eligible for admission.
There are 48 alumni associations across the country, that offer networking and cultural events for members, often partnering with scholarships programs and charitable organizations.
For membership, many requirements are necessary, from high level courses, bilingual ability and a certain moral and ethical character.
