Executive Board

Every year, the Emory chapter of Phi Eta Sigma invites applications for interested members to serve on the executive board. Members of the executive board develop programming for Phi Eta Sigma members, lead the annual induction ceremony, and collaborate with other Emory student organizations.

Requirements and Expectations

Students must attend and participate in Phi Eta Sigma organized programming to be eligible for the spring induction ceremony. Programming typically involves a Mentoring Night in partnership with Omicron Delta Kappa, a Scholarship Night, and a Service Night. Each event aims to facilitate connections among Phi Eta Sigma students and support both intellectual and professional development.

Continuing Excellence Award

Members of Phi Eta Sigma who later join either Omicron Delta Kappa and/or Phi Beta Kappa Honor Societies, are eligible to apply to the Continuing Excellence Award. The award of $500 is for one graduating senior who demonstrates academic and intellectual excellence, dedication to Emory, and showcases exemplary leadership. The recipient is recognized at the annual Honors Ceremony.
