Phi Theta Kappa
Undergraduate Scholarship & Discount
$3,000 PTK Undergraduate Gap Scholarship
Tulane SoPA’s Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) honor society scholarship helps fill the gap between tuition and mandatory fees, and awarded financial aid. It can pay for tuition and eligible fee-related expenses at Tulane, and is calculated after all other scholarships, discounts and financial aid for which a student is eligible have been accounted.
The scholarship is for up to $1,500 per semester to Tulane SoPA, or $3,000 a year, for those who meet the following criteria:
- Were an active PTK member in good standing at the time of graduation, with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5.
- Have completed a FAFSA and listed Tulane University as a recipient of FAFSA data.
In order to maintain the scholarship, you must be in good academic standing and enroll in at least 12 credits in the fall and spring semester each year.
To receive the scholarship, apply for admission to Tulane SoPA and complete the PTK Scholarship Application, submitting it, with a copy of your PTK membership certificate, as directed on the application. Tulane’s Office of Financial Aid will include the scholarship in your financial aid package each semester.
All PTK students are eligible for a 20% discount on tuition.* PTK members must fill out the discount form in addition to the scholarship form to be eligible for the discount, and provide a copy of their certificate of PTK membership.
All transfer students are eligible for a $500 scholarship for their first 3 consecutive semesters.
Total Cost to PTK Transfers
When you transfer 60 credits, PTK Scholars can earn an undergraduate degree for less than $26,500.
