One of the main reasons students join Phi Theta Kappa is scholarships!  There are several different kinds of scholarships available:

Chapter officer scholarships

These $1,000/semester scholarships are awarded to some chapter officers at Calhoun.

Automatic transfer scholarships for PTK members

These scholarships are sponsored by 4 year schools and vary in amount.  A few samples include:

  • University of Alabama at Birmingham:  $6,500 per year
  • Montevallo University:  $6,000 per year
  • University of North Alabama:  $4,000 per year
  • Mississippi State University: $4,000 per year

Competitive PTK Scholarships

There are a number of competitive scholarships for which PTK members can apply every fall and spring.  Scholarships are available those working toward associate’s degrees, transferring to a 4-year school, or entering the workforce after completing a certificate program.  For more information on available scholarships, check out the PTK webpage: https://www.ptk.org/scholarships/i-am-transferring/ptk-competitive-scholarships/
