Fotina Lefta originally from Albania, who is an Eastern Kentucky University senior biology major has been awarded a $5,000 Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship for graduate study. She is one of 60 students in the USA to receive the 2009 award from the national honour society.
“Each year, Phi Kappa Phi awards 60 fellowships of $5,000 each and 40 Awards of Excellence of $2,000 each to members entering the first year of graduate or professional study. Each Phi Kappa Phi chapter may select one candidate from among its local applicants to compete for the Society-wide awards. Lefta also received a $500 scholarship from the EKU chapter.”
“I, the Phi Kappa Phi Board of Directors, and the EKU chapter congratulate Tina on her exceptional academic record and outstanding service to others,” said Dr. Robert B. Rogow, national Society President of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and dean of EKU’s College of Business and Technology. “I am very proud that she has received this prestigious fellowship from Phi Kappa Phi and wishes her much success next year as she begins her graduate studies.”
