The Frank H. Eby Award was approved and adopted by the Executive Committee during the Executive Committee Meeting held in Scottsdale, Arizona, September 28-29, 1978. The award was designed to replace the Frank H. Eby Educational Fund Award, which was discontinued in 1971. The award is presented every two (2) years at the Grand Council Convention to the Collegiate Brother who has contributed the most to Kappa Psi. The award is funded by using the interest accumulated from the Frank H. Eby Endowment Fund. Each Collegiate Chapter has the opportunity to nominate one (1) member for the award. To be eligible for nomination, the nominee must be an active member of a Collegiate Chapter or an alumni member up to one year after graduation. The criteria for the award are listed below. The Frank H. Eby Award Committee evaluates each candidate and selects the winner. The award consists of a plaque and monetary award of $250.00.
The nomination and additional data necessary for the award must arrive in The Central Office at least ninety (90) days prior to the Grand Council Convention (the specific deadline is sent in the GCC Packet).
