While Pi Gamma Mu is not the largest or wealthiest of the 62 national and international honor societies affiliated with the national Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), arguably our international officers and trustees and our chapter sponsors are the hardest-working volunteers who can be found in any of the societies.  No effort is spared to make our members’ experiences as fulfilling as possible. Here are some examples:

  • Membership CertificateThe membership certificate that we present to initiates has a truly elegant and distinguished appearance, suitable for its significant recognition purpose.
  • We publish one of the most attractive and informative newsletters to keep our members informed about events and opportunities.  So that all members--students, faculty, and alumni--may access the Pi Gamma Mu Newsletter, we maintain a listserv to which all may subscribe.
International Social Science Review
  • We publish a very highly regarded, peer-reviewed scholarly journal: the International Social Science Review.  Each initiate receives a one-year subscription, which is renewable thereafter for a modest fee.
  • In terms of amount and quantity, we provide some of the most generous scholarships to our undergraduate members who are advancing to graduate school.
  • We organize a lively convention once every three years, and partially subsidize the travel of many of the delegates.  A portion of every initiation fee is set aside as a travel fund for chapter delegates, and many of the students who present papers at conventions receive subsidized lodging in a room in the hotel.
  • We provide lectureship grants, which pay for speakers’ honoraria for chapter events.

Providing all of these services and opportunities reflects the tenacity of the officers, the executive director, and the office manager, who have become experts at taking modest amounts of resources and extracting the maximum amount of benefit from them.


If you would like to discuss the possibility of establishing a scholarship fund, call our executive director at (620) 221-3128, or send an E-mail message ( We will happily assist you to establish a scholarship in your name, or in the name of someone whom you would like to honor or memorialize.
