Phi Sigma Iota Honor Society
for study in a Classical or Modern Foreign Language
Phi Sigma Iota, the international foreign language honor society, was founded in 1922 at Allegheny College. The Beta Delta chapter was installed at Santa Clara University in 1982. The society recognizes remarkable ability and achievement in languages, literatures, and linguistics. It stimulates advanced work in these fields, fosters intercultural understanding, and promotes a spirit of amity between our own people and other peoples of the world.
Richard F. Rebello Phi Sigma Iota Award
Established in 1986 by the family of the late Richard Rebello, longtime University staff member, these awards are given by the Modern Languages Department to junior or senior language majors for outstanding accomplishments in the study of a foreign language and culture.
