Scholarship for Advisors who have NOT gone to International Convention:

This year 20 scholarships to the 2015 Annual Convention in San Antonio, TX will be awarded to chapter advisors who have never attended pre-Convention activities or the convention. Advisors selected will also receive a scholarship for one chapter officer or member to attend The Phi Theta Kappa Academy and Annual Convention.

This scholarship package, valued at $713, will cover Early Bird Convention Registration fees to participate in the Honors in Action Academy on April 16th as well as registration fees for the Annual Convention, April 16-18, 2015.

Scholarship recipients will be notified on January 15, 2015. When selecting advisors to receive scholarships, preference will be given to those who have never attended an Annual Convention or Academy. Both advisor and member must be able to attend to take advantage of the scholarship.
