Partial Scholarship Membership Fee

Phi Theta Kappa never wants finances to get in the way of you accessing the membership benefits Phi Theta Kappa has to offer. There are a small number of Phi Theta Kappa Membership Assistance Scholarships available! These are partial scholarships that cover $70 of the $90 membership fee. The scholarship recipient is expected to cover the remaining $20. Complete the scholarship application to receive membership fee assistance. When filling the form out, you will be first asked about attending the Induction ceremony. Attendance is not required to receive the scholarship.
