The Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Austin

Welcome to PBKAAGA!

The Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Austin (PBKAAGA) was formed by members of PBK, those elected at the Alpha of Texas and throughout the country, to promote the academic values of the society in Austin and the surrounding region. In addition to organizing social and intellectual events, including a lecture and reception twice a year, PBKAAGA has created endowments to fund scholarships for local high school students who will soon enter college and for adult students who are returning to college to complete their B.A. or B.S. degrees.  PBKAAGA welcomes any PBK member living in the Greater Austin area to join.

Congratulations to our former PBKAAGA scholarship recipient, Joshua Riehl. His documentary about water in Haiti won the "Most Viewed Award" from PBS with over 25,000 views. Well done, Josh!

"Digging for Water” follows a Haitian community’s difficulty in obtaining a clean water source. Its director, investigative journalist Joshua Riehl, filmed the documentary during three trips to Haiti that took place over 18 months. 

The PBKAAGA wants to take a moment to recognize our members, and especially our donors, for what they make possible:  support for some of the finest students in the area. Every membership makes a difference.  Thank you, donors!
