Fairgrieve '12 Awarded Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship
June 4, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Amy Fairgrieve, Class of 2012, has been awarded a $5,000 Phi Kappa
Phi Fellowship to complete a doctorate program at the University of Minnesota (U of
M). She is one of 51 students awarded this fellowship nationally.
The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi currently awards 51 Fellowships of $5,000 each
and six of $15,000 each to members entering the first year of graduate or professional
study. Each university-affiliated Phi Kappa Phi chapter selects one candidate from
among its applicants to compete for the society-wide awards.
“U of M appealed to me because of how seamlessly the program fits with my research
interests. My Research Honors project at IWU focused on Cognitive Literary Theory
and I would like to continue work in that area,” said Fairgrieve, an English literature
major while at IWU, from North Aurora, Ill.
