Transfer Scholarship for In-State Resident (enrolling Fall 2012 or after)
Known as Phi Theta Kappa Member Scholarships, these awards are especially for Indiana residents transferring to Ball State.
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 or 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 of 2012 or after, the Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship has been changed to a fixed dollar amount. Indiana residents will receive $4,500 a year for a two year/four semester total of $9,000 (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.
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.
