The PTK scholarship covers tuition only and does not include books, additional fees or housing.  You must be admitted to be eligible for an invitation and must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid  FAFSA. Minimum requirements include the criteria listed above. If qualified, the invitation will include directions to submit a scholarship essay and (1) letter of recommendation. Candidates will also interview with the Scholarship Committee. Unfortunately, students who already hold a bachelor’s degree are not eligible. You can only be invited one time to compete for this scholarship and cannot defer your admission to another term or change your major.
