The Ability Experience

Bergstrom Fellows

The Bergstrom Fellowship awards men of Pi Kappa Phi who dedicate their summer to service as a counselor for a camp that serves people with disabilities. The program is designed to give men of Pi Kappa Phi who have a desire to serve a camp as a counselor, have a summer job, and gain additional distinction and scholarship for their efforts.

Along with gaining distinction of being a Kelley A. Bergstrom Fellow, men who complete their summer will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship in addition to the funds that participants earn from working at the camp.

Serving as a Bergstrom Fellow is a great way to gain leadership skills, grow your professional network, and build your resume. The Bergstrom Fellowship program is limited to 25 men of Pi Kappa Phi in 2018.

Requirements of a Bergstrom Fellow: 

  • Be an associate, active, or alumni member of Pi Kappa Phi
  • Meet all camp hiring criteria
