About Us
Election to Phi Beta Kappa recognizes superior scholastic achievement in the liberal arts and sciences. Phi Beta Kappa's core values -- intellectual honesty, broad interests, tolerance, understanding, and the growth of the spirit as well as the mind -- are even more critical today than they were in 1776 when Phi Beta Kappa was founded.

In the Puget Sound community, our association encourages and supports excellence in education through a very active awards and recognition program as well as a variety of member activities. Our annual book awards and scholarships are dedicated to acknowledging the accomplishments of outstanding students, while our Pathfinder Awards recognize extraordinary leaders in promoting high quality learning. The activities are designed to provide continued learning experiences and fellowship for members.

Chartered on January 22, 1953, our association is open to all Phi Beta Kappa members elected by any chapter. Currently we have about 400 members.

Please note that membership dues/contributions to the Puget Sound Association of Phi Beta Kappa are separate from contributions to your college chapter or to the national Phi Beta Kappa Society.
