English Honor Society

 
 
Sigma Tau Delta Logo

Sigma Tau Delta is an international honor society aimed at recognizing high achievement in the undergraduate and graduate study of English language and literature. Sigma Tau Delta provides exceptional students opportunities for advancing the study of language and literature, for developing skills in creative and analytical writing, and for meeting other outstanding scholars and professionals in the discipline of English.


At regional conferences and at the annual international convention, students have the chance to present original, creative, and analytical work and to network with students, faculty, and professionals from around the country and abroad. Here at FGCU, our local chapter also hosts literary celebrations, networking events, and professional workshops geared toward preparing students for graduate school as well as English-related careers after graduation.


Membership in Sigma Tau Delta grants students access to a variety of opportunities:

  • Members are eligible to apply for a substantial number of national scholarships.
  • Members may apply for summer internship stipends and internship opportunities.
  • Members may submit papers for presentation at Sigma Tau Delta’s annual spring convention.
  • Members may submit articles and papers to various Sigma Tau Delta online and print publications.
  • Members may apply for officer positions in the local chapter and gain valuable leadership experience for their CV or resume.
