Alumnus awarded prestigious Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship

Alan Flurry

UGA Franklin alumnus Chip Chambers will attend medical school as a recipient of a Marcus L. Urann Fellowship by The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi—the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines:

Chambers is one of only six recipients nationwide to receive the prestigious $20,000 fellowship, named for the society’s founder.

As a Urann Fellow, Chambers, of Watkinsville, Georgia, will pursue a dual Doctor of Medicine and Master of Business Administration at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.

Chambers was a Foundation Fellow and a teaching assistant in UGA’s Honors Program. He graduated in December 2019 with bachelor’s degrees in economics from the Terry College of Business and biology from the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences; a minor in health policy and management; and certificates in interdisciplinary writing, and personal and organizational leadership. While at UGA, he was best known as Mic Man, the hype man who fires up the fans in front of the student section at Sanford Stadium.

Congratulations to an amazing UGA student and very talented Franklin College alumnus.
