December 13, 2023

UA-PTC student Keyzia Tjieputra has been awarded the John Balgavy Memorial Scholarship through the UA-PTC Foundation. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a currently enrolled student completing a degree in Technical Science with a 2.0 minimum GPA.

Keyzia Tjieputra is a freshman at UA - Pulaski Tech and is pursuing an Associate of Science in Technology and Engineering. She is a hard working student and has earned a 4.0 GPA. After completing her degree at UA-PTC, she intends to transfer to University of Central Arkansas to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with a Data Science concentration.

"Pursuing a degree is important to me because I strive to become the best version of myself; being educated is an empowerment that others can't take away from me," said Tjieputra. "Being awarded this scholarship will be something I will cherish for the rest of my life. The kindness won’t be forgotten; I hope to extend it by providing other students with financial assistance in the future."

The John Balgavy Memorial Scholarship was established by Dr. Angela Kremers, Dean of Technical and Professional Studies in memory of John Balgavy who passed away this past summer. Mr. Balgavy taught Construction Management at UA-PTC and was loved by his students and work colleagues.

The UA-PTC Foundation awards scholarships to currently enrolled students in the fall and spring semesters. The spring scholarship application opens Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2024. Visit to see the available scholarship opportunities.
