Psi Chi National Service Award

A Psi Chi National Service Award is available for individual chapters to award to worthy chapter members. The purpose of the award is to give recognition within the individual chapter to a member who has contributed in an exceptional way to meeting successfully the local chapter's goals and the national aims of Psi Chi. Each chapter is entitled to confer one such award annually to a person completing his or her work in the department that year. Presumably this award will be granted at graduation exercises or at such time as is defined by the institution for awarding honors.

To receive the award, the individual must be selected by vote of the chapter, subject to the approval of the faculty advisor.
