Tell us about your college’s new transfer scholarship for members of Phi Theta Kappa.
Husson University is proud to offer a new scholarship exclusive for all PTK members for $1,500 that is new for 2018.

Why does your college feel it’s important to offer a scholarship opportunity for members?
Phi Theta Kappa students come in with a great work ethic and a proven track record at their previous institution. Husson wanted to recognize their achievements and make the college search process more streamlined.

Are there other transfer scholarships that could be stacked with your Phi Theta Kappa award?
Yes — Husson offers a merit-based transfer scholarship and a new-for-2018 Maine Community College award for students that have recently graduated from the Maine Community College System (MCCS). Both of these scholarships can be paired and stacked with the new Phi Theta Kappa scholarship.

In your opinion, what is one of the most impressive things about your college?
The affordability aspect. Husson University is not only a transfer-friendly institution, but we are very proud to be the lowest net-priced private four-year college in Maine.
