Brown is majoring in Anthropology with minors in Medical Humanities and Mathematics within the VCU College of Humanities and Sciences. 

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi currently awards seventy-five Study Abroad Grants each year with the mission of supporting undergraduate students as they seek knowledge and experience in their academic fields by studying abroad. 

"When I was originally searching for study abroad scholarships this past fall and saw the Phi Kappa Phi (PKP) Study Abroad Grant, I immediately added it to my list of things to apply to in bold. The PKP Grant is a really unique merit-based scholarship opportunity that awards student ambition," said Brown. "I am incredibly excited to go to Alicante, Spain to study Spanish language and culture this summer and am grateful for the additional opportunity to conduct a PhotoVoice about LGBTQIA+ experiences in Spain during the Madrid pride parade. Study abroad has always been a dream of mine and was a factor for why I was so eager to join the School of World Studies at VCU. Now, I am in Spain living out this opportunity thanks to PKP and my other generous donors." 

Phi Kappa Phi awards nearly $1 million each year to outstanding students, Phi Kappa Phi members and chapters. To learn more about Phi Kappa Phi national awards, click here.
