The Penn State Chapter (Lambda of Pennsylvania) of Phi Beta Kappa will award its Sukhi and Delania Jolly Thesis Prize of $1250 to a meritorious research project completed in an eligible field by a Schreyer Scholar for his or her honors thesis. Award recipients must be majoring and/or have the thesis completed in a discipline included within Phi Beta Kappa. Virtually all majors in the College of Liberal Arts and in the Eberly College of Science fall into this category, as well as numerous others in a number of other Penn State colleges. A list of approved majors is available at the chapter website, and also below. Besides the quality of the thesis itself, the potential for the student to continue making significant contributions to one or more liberal studies fields will also be considered.

An e-mail notification of intent to apply, together with the name and e-mail address of the thesis advisor, should be sent to Awards Chair Prof. Thomas Beebee at email@example.com no later than April 10, 2017. This is so that the applicant and adviser can be added to the group.
All application materials must be submitted no later than Friday, April 14, 2017. Late submissions will not be considered. Electronic versions of the three documents should be posted by the applicant and thesis advisor in an ANGEL Group Drop Box created for this purpose. (Applicants and thesis advisors will be joined to the ANGEL Group when the notification of intent to apply is received.)
