Three UMaine graduate students receive Phi Kappa Phi research grants

Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective multidisciplinary collegiate honor society, has awarded graduate research grants to three University of Maine students.

Emma Erwin, a Ph.D. student in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences; Elizabeth Leclerc, an interdisciplinary Ph.D. student with the Department of Anthropology and the Climate Change Institute; and Dylan O’Hara, a history Ph.D. student, are among the 20 grant recipients nationwide for 2023. According to Phi Kappa Phi, the up to $1,500 grants will support society member graduate students “seeking funding for research in support of career development opportunities.”

Phi Kappa Phi started at UMaine in 1897. As the founding institution, the university is home to chapter 1.
