Phi Eta Sigma
Founded in 1923 at the University of Illinois, Phi Eta Sigma is the nation's oldest and largest honor society for first-year college and university students in all disciplines. Inspired by the past and dedicated to the future, the Society's mission is to encourage and reward academic excellence among freshmen in institutions of higher learning. The three Greek words appearing on our crest form the motto of the organization: 'Knowledge is Power.'
Since its founding, more than 1,100,000 scholars have been inducted into Phi Eta Sigma. Phi Eta Sigma chapters are chartered on 378 campuses across the United States, including at Oklahoma State University. Hundreds of college and university faculty and staff volunteers share their time to serve as advisers to local chapters. Approximately $300,000 in scholarships is awarded annually by the national organization, and many additional thousands are awarded by local chapters. Please stay tuned to this website for specific details relating to annual scholarships offered by our OSU chapter.
The official magazine of the honor society, The Forum of Phi Eta Sigma, is published annually and distributed to active members through the local campus chapters.
