To celebrate and recognize the achievements of its members, Phi Kappa Phi uses a program known as Merit. This program allows the Society to create and publish personalized stories about members’ achievements such as being initiated into Phi Kappa Phi, receiving a scholarship or award, becoming a chapter officer and more.

When a story is created, it will be posted to the Phi Kappa Phi Merit page and distributed to the member’s hometown newspaper(s). In addition, a customizable online Merit profile will be created for the member to easily share his or her achievement with family and friends on social media.

Each story will include a Phi Kappa Phi-branded badge representing a specific achievement. Consider it a virtual trophy! Members can enhance their online Merit profiles by adding a photo, other activities, achievements, work experience and affiliations. The Merit profile can provide a positive, professional online listing of accomplishments for members to share with prospective employers.

Check out Phi Kappa Phi's Merit page to see the latest member achievements.
