  1. One-time initiation fee for new members covers all materials required for induction, and it pays society and local dues for the first year: $35 for students and $55 for faculty, staff and scholars.*
  2. To remain an active member, annual dues are collected each year in October. These cover both national and local dues: $25 for students and $35 for faculty, staff and scholars. Members should receive a renewal letter and form by email, or you can download the renewal form here.
Checks or money orders in U.S. dollars should be made payable to Phi Beta Delta. The renewal form and payment should be sent to Phi Beta Delta in care of The Office of International Programs, 1450 Jayhawk Blvd., 300 Strong Hall, Lawrence, KS 66045.
*National society induction fees and dues are $50. Thus, the local chapter contributes $15 to help cover the cost of each new student member. The chapter retains $5 from each new faculty, staff, and scholar membership.
