The American Scholar, the magazine of the Phi Beta Kappa Society

Support Good Writing

Since 1932, The Phi Beta Kappa Society has generously supported The American Scholar, one of the nation's most influential and respected quarterly magazines. That support continues, but both nonprofits like PBK and small magazines like the Scholar are under ever-increasing financial pressure.

Even as the Scholar's print circulaton holds steady and our digital circulation grows, we need your backing so that the best writing and thinking we can find continues to appear in our pages, and on your computer, e-reader or mobile device.

Won't you help us in that effort? Your contributions are tax deductible.
