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.
