Phi Theta Kappa Members: One scholarship is awarded each fall semester to an outstanding student who has been involved in Phi Theta Kappa at their current institution. This scholarship is $1,500, renewable for two years. To apply, submit the MyScholarships application by the final deadline of May 1. Check that you are a current member of Phi Theta Kappa, and list Phi Theta Kappa under the School Activities and Clubs section.

Process for Armstrong and Liberty Campuses

New students are awarded Armstrong Foundation scholarship funds by the Office of Admissions. The Office of Admissions will award 2018-2019 Armstrong Foundation scholarship funds to students enrolling at the Armstrong Campus or Liberty Campus based on prospective students’ application for admission.

These scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit, need or both. Scholarship committees at either the university, college or department/program level are responsible for awarding these funds. When reviewing applications, the scholarship committee considers many factors: academic achievements and GPA; unmet financial need; community service; leadership experience; extracurricular activities.
