Whole Man Scholarships
Whole Man Scholars are invited to the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute to participate in the Shaffer Honors College of Leadership and are then given a scholarship.
Currently, 43 chapters have Whole Man Scholarships available to them, but beginning this year, if the original Whole Man Scholarship chapter fails to submit its nominee(s), the scholarship(s) will become available to any Phi Delt chapter.
Each chapter with a Whole Man Scholarship available must submit a nominee no later than February 15, 2019, and the nominee must complete the online application no later than March 15, 2019.
Whole Man Scholarship nominees must have previously attended the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute or the Phikeia Educators College (at Kleberg). They must also be able to attend the Shaffer Honors College of Leadership at Kleberg this summer (July 27-30, 2019) to be eligible for the award. Nominations require a minimum 3.0 GPA.
Whole Man Scholarships will no longer roll over if the nominee is not able to attend Kleberg.
Graduate Fellowships are available to any graduating seniors who will be attending graduate school during the 2019-2020 academic year and any current graduate school students.
