In 1994 a group of PBK.gif (2135 bytes) alumni formed a local association in the Tampa Bay area. Their purpose was to foster scholarship, friendship, cultural interests, and intellectual exchange among members in the region. In 1997 the national organization recognized the Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Tampa Bay, which sponsors a Fall and a Spring meeting for members and their guests.

In 1997 the Association expanded its mission to provide scholarships to two outstanding high school seniors.  Since 1998, scholarships ranging from $1000 to $2500 have been awarded in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. 

Within our area, Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, FL was awarded the Zeta of Florida chapter of Phi Beta Kappa in 2004.

If you are a member of PBK.gif (2135 bytes) and would like information about joining the Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of  Tampa Bay, please contact Joanne Frazier.

   Popular Hype and Scientific Reality:  
The Case of Emotional Intelligence


Few psychological topics in recent years have received as much popular attention as emotional intelligence.  Surely all of the claims made in its name cannot be true ... can they?  This talk will focus on the scientific evidence behind this widely discussed topic.

In 1999, thanks to the generosity of our members, the PBK.gif (2135 bytes) Alumni Association of  Tampa Bay initiated and funded two $1,000 scholarships--one to be awarded to a senior graduating from a Hillsborough county public high school and one to a senior graduating from a Pinellas County high school.  This amount has steadily increased and in 2007, the association was able to award $2,500 per recipient.

Applicants had to have at least a 4.5 weighted or 3.8 unweighted grade point average, combined SAT scores of at least 1400 or an ACT score of at least 30, and a demonstrated record of leadership and service.  Applicants also had to intend to pursue a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree with a major in the liberal arts or sciences in a four-year college or university.

The Hillsborough and Pinellas County Education Foundations administer the scholarships in their respective counties, but the PBK.gif (2135 bytes) Alumni Association of Tampa Bay, for whom the scholarships are named, provides the funds and the Scholarship Committee selects the winners.  If you would like to join us in this opportunity to recognize outstanding academic achievement and foster liberal arts education, please contact Victoria Baker
