  • Phi Theta Kappa scholarships are awarded to transfer students who provide proof of membership in Phi Theta Kappa. This scholarship is in the amount of $1,000 and is in addition to the Provost's Scholarship. This is a renewable reward.

Transfer scholarships are renewable each year provided the recipient maintains a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. These amounts are based on selection criteria for the 2012-2013 academic year.
