BYU graduate receives Phi Kappa Phi fellowship

A recent graduate of Brigham Young University was awarded a fellowship from Phi Kappa Phi, one of the nation’s most prestigious honor societies. She is one of only 60 recipients nationwide of the fellowship.

Courtney Innes graduated in April magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in archaeology and a minor in Middle Eastern studies. She was also an honors student and a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship competition.

Innes plans on pursuing a master’s degree in archaeological sciences and has been accepted to Oxford, Cambridge and the University College of London, England.

Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective honor society for all disciplines. According to its website, “membership is by invitation only to the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students and 7.5 percent of juniors.”

The organization has some notable members including former President Jimmy Carter, writer John Grisham and Netscape founder James Barksdale. The society was founded in 1932.

For more information, contact Carolyn Tuitupou at (801) 422-6136 or call the Phi Kappa Phi offices at 1-800-804-9880.
