offers 2 types of scholarships. The first is an automatic transfer scholarship,
where, if you attend certain universities outside of the CUNY system, you will
be offered some amount of money as a scholarship. You can ask your transfer
institutions about these PTK Transfer scholarships or use CollegeFish.org (a
benefit for all PTK members) to search for 4 year institutions which offer Phi
Theta Kappa scholarships.
second type of scholarship is those which one applies for. PTK has a Spring
Common Application for scholarships which apply to your tuition if you are
staying at your 2-year institution the following academic year. The Fall Common
Application offers scholarships which, if won, will go with you to your chosen
transfer institution. Both rounds of these scholarship applications rely on PTK
involvement with the chapter.
one exception is the All-USA scholarship, which is open to all students and is
advertised to students in the fall semester. There is an internal deadline to
submit this application, your application go through a selection committee and
of all applications submitted at LAGCC, 2 students are selected as LAGCC’s
nominees for this scholarship. If you miss the internal deadline, you cannot
apply for this scholarship.
you have joined PTK after the Fall Common application closes (in December) and
are graduating in June, the only scholarships available to you through PTK are
the PTK transfer scholarships offered by each institution (the first type of
scholarship described above).
