2017 Call for Award Nominations
Phi Beta Delta: The Honor Society for International Scholars
Phi Beta Delta is pleased to invite nominations from all its chapters for the following awards:
Chapters may submit two student nominations—one for a domestic student and one for a student from outside of the United States; however, only one nomination may be submitted for the Faculty Award and only one nomination for the Staff Award.
Award recipients are expected to attend the awards ceremony held during the International Conference, where the presentation of awards will be made.
A list of previous award recipients is included on the Phi Beta Delta website:http://www.phibetadelta.org/awards
