Schmitz receives 2022 Phi Kappa Phi Love of Learning Award

BATON ROUGE, LA — Giselle M. Schmitz of Hidden Valley Lake, California, was recently awarded a Love of Learning Award worth $500 from The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Schmitz is one of 200 recipients to receive the award.

Love of Learning Awards are designed to help fund post-baccalaureate professional development for active Phi Kappa Phi members including graduate or professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, travel related to teaching and research, career development and more.

Schmitz, 2022 John A. Knauss Policy Fellow at NOAA Fisheries, will use funds from the award to support outreach and professional development opportunities provided through a presentation at the American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting.

Schmitz was initiated into Phi Kappa Phi in 2022 at Fordham University.

Established in 2007, the Love of Learning Program gives 200 awards annually. The selection process for a Love of Learning Award is based on the applicant's academic achievement, campus and community service, intended use of award funds as it relates to academic and career goals, and a personal statement.

Since 1932, Phi Kappa Phi's awards program has recognized members and students on its chapter campuses for outstanding academic achievement. In addition to the Love of Learning Program, Phi Kappa Phi awards graduate and dissertation fellowships, study abroad grants, and grants for local, national and international literacy initiatives. Each year $1.3 million is awarded through award programs that recognize nearly 500 individuals annually.
