SHAWNEE — St. Gregory's University became a charter member of the Golden Key International Honour Society, opening the door for students in its adult degree program to earn membership in the group.
The Golden Key International Honour Society awards millions of dollars in scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students in all fields of study. Composed of more than 400 chapters in eight countries, the society is built on a foundation of mutual respect, encouragement and teamwork.
To be recognized by the Golden Key Society, students must be in the top 15 percent of academic performers currently enrolled at the member institution and must fit Golden Key's criteria of leadership, service and academics.
“Golden Key members are members for life once they accept the invitation and pay a membership fee,” said Ron Diggs, director of St. Gregory's College of Continuing Studies. “Once they have done so, they can take advantage of benefits reserved exclusively for society members, such as relationships with international studies opportunities, internships and scholarships.”
