Student Support Scholarships are awarded to assist students with tuition and books and are available to part-time as well as full-time students. The scholarships are funded by numerous small donations that many Thetans voluntarily add to their international dues each year.
Each scholarship consists of a payment of $1,500, which is disbursed directly to an accredited college or university on behalf of the recipient.
The application must include evidence that the applicant:
A) Is a member in good standing of Pi Lambda Theta.
B) Has a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale.
C) Is enrolled full-time or part-time for a minimum of three semester hours at a regionally accredited institution during the year following the award.
The application must include:
A) Completed online application (Deadline April 1, 2015.)
B) An official college transcript that includes the fall semester/quarter (or if not currently enrolled, the most recent semester/quarter), verifying at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale
C) A 100- to 200-word essay of the applicant’s personal philosophy of teaching/learning. [Essays that exceed the word count may be disqualified.] No additional copies of the above material are required; however, Pi Lambda Theta reserves the right to require up to 10 copies of material that is not readily reproducible. Application materials are not returned.
Recipients are selected by the scholarships committee.
