Let the love of learning rule humanity.
Phi Kappa Phi Motto
The Phi Kappa Phi Gathright/Dean's Excellence awards were created to recognize top first-year and sophomore students for their achievements. These university-wide awards are presented annually to the top freshman and sophomore students in each college who display exceptional promise. The award is administered in partnership with the TAMU chapter of Phi Kappa Phi
, one of the oldest and most prestigious honor societies in the world. The goal of the Dean's Excellence awards is to identify and honor those students who exemplify the Phi Kappa Phi motto to "let the love of learning rule humanity."
The top student in each college and classification is designated as a Gathright Scholar, with the second student recognized as the Dean's Excellence Award winner.
Letters of Recommendation must be submitted by June 3, 2024 at 5:00 PM.
Awardees will be honored with an official certificate at the annual Phi Kappa Phi Fall Breakfast in October.
