The College of St. Scholastica is privileged to award the Phi Theta Kappa Benedictine Scholarship to current members of this scholastic national honor society. The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society promotes values concurrent and consistent with those held by the College. Scholarship, scholastic integrity and perseverance are hallmarks of the St. Scholastica tradition, and we welcome PTK members as students who have demonstrated their respect for scholarship. Our commitment to the members of PTK has been to create a $1,000 renewable scholarship to be awarded automatically to all PTK members in good standing. The details on eligibility follow. Before proceeding, the Transfer Admissions Office would like to congratulate you on your scholastic achievement and that which you will attain at the College!
This academic scholarship is for all new transfer students with current membership in the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society with a GPA of 3.5 or higher and completion of at least 12 semester credit hours.
