Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship
The Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship is for Indiana residents transferring to Ball State University. To be eligible for this award, you must:
- be an Indiana resident who has earned an associate of arts or associate of science degree with a minimum 3.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale from an accredited in-state community for junior-college.
- must be inducted member of Phi Theta Kappa
- must enroll in on-campus classes as a full-time degree-seeking student at Ball State for the first fall or spring semester following completion of the associate degree
Effective for students enrolling for the Fall Semester 2012 or after, the Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship is $4,500 a year (tuition only). It is renewable for three additional semesters if 3.0 GPA is maintained at Ball State. A limited number of scholarships are awarded based on availability of funds.
For students enrolled prior to Fall Semester 2012, the award is a waiver of one-half of in-state tuition/general fees (this does not include room and board charges, technology fees, or Health Center fee). It is renewable for three additional semesters if 3.0 GPA is maintained at Ball State.
All eligible transfer applicants who have been admitted by July 1 are considered for this award. No separate scholarship application is necessary. However, you should submit a copy of your Phi Theta Kappa membership certificate or membership card and a personal letter requesting scholarship consideration to the Admissions Office.
Out-of-state students, students with previous bachelor's degrees, and re-enrolling Ball State students are not eligible.
