Petar Dimov wins Ann Hunter scholarship from ISU’s Phi Kappa Phi honor society

Posted April 17, 2014

Petar Dimov, an Idaho State University senior in mechanical engineering, is the recipient of the Ann Hunter Scholarship from the ISU chapter of Phi Kappa Phi honor society for spring of 2014.

The Ann Hunter Scholarship provides a full semester of in-state tuition to a student who embodies the application of Phi Kappa Phi honor society’s motto, “The Love of Learning,” in his or her academic career.

Dimov was born in Bulgaria and attended high school in England before coming to ISU. In his application essay, Dimov discusses how his experiences living in three countries have expanded his interests in broadening his horizons and have given him renewed appreciation for how much is yet to be learned. He hopes to continue his education after graduate with the goal of completing his Ph.D. and teaching in a university setting. Dimov will read his scholarship-winning essay at Phi Kappa Phi’s annual induction ceremony at Juniper Hills Country Club on May 1.

Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. ISU’s chapter promotes the love of learning through a variety of activities each year, including a fall scholarly lecture at the Portneuf Valley Brewery, running a program to collect children’s books for young students in our community, and sponsoring a GRE/GMAT preparation session for undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate school.
