2016 Scholarship Winners

Mu Kappa Tau is proud to announce this year's scholarship recipients:

       
This year's applicants were so well qualified and deserving that the Mu Kappa Tau Executive Committee decided to award an extra $200 scholarship.  To read short bios about this year's winners, please click here!

I strongly encourage all members to apply for these scholarships next year!  Applications are done online and must be submitted by mid February.
ACHS Member Benefits!

Did you know that being a member of Mu Kappa Tau also means that you are entitled to member benefits from the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) as well?  

These benefits include discounts for attending certain conferences (like Scholarcon), FREE access to a career launching tool ( GiftedHire), and qualifying for internship scholarships (like in Washington, DC)!  For a full list of these and other ACHS member benefits,  click here!

2016-2017 MKT Executive Committee and Welcome
