UA-PTC Foundation Scholarship Opportunities

All currently enrolled UA-PTC students are now eligible to apply for most scholarships; there are still a few that are only available to second year students. All applications require a 300 word essay; most now require a letter of recommendation from a UA-PTC instructor. First semester students must provide proof of current grades (specific criteria is listed on the individual applications). The spring application deadline is March 16, 2018. All eligibility requirements are outlined on each application; please make sure to read each application as they have different eligibility requirements. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.  It is the student’s sole responsibility to insure all eligibility requirements are met and the application package is complete.
