GEICO Pathway to Completion Master's Degree Scholarship

Phi Theta Kappa has partnered with GEICO to offer the Society’s first scholarship supporting the completion of graduate studies. Phi Theta Kappa alumni who have completed a bachelor’s degree with a 3.5 GPA or higher, and who plan to enroll full time in a master’s degree program in the next fall term are eligible to apply. Two scholarships of $2,500 each will be awarded in the spring of 2015.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Must be a Phi Theta Kappa alumni having left your chapter in good standing.
  • Must have graduated from a regionally accredited senior institution with a bachelor’s degree. You must submit a transcript from your senior institution showing a degree line with your bachelor’s degree received and the date you were awarded the degree.
  • Transcripts must document you graduated from your bachelor’s degree program with a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher.
  • You must currently be enrolled full-time in your first graduate degree program at a regionally accredited university and intend to continue full-time enrollment in your graduate degree program through Fall Semester 2014 and Spring Semester 2015. Proof enrollment must be submitted before funds may be collected.  Students holding previous graduate degrees are not eligible to apply. Preference will be given to students who have previously served as Phi Theta Kappa chapter, regional or international officers.
  • The application will open August 11 and all applications must be postmarked by Thursday, October 1, 2014. No late applications will be accepted. Applications not in compliance with any details specified in the application form, or failure to provide supporting documentation, will make an application incomplete and disqualified.
  • You may only apply for the GEICO Pathways to Completion Graduate Award once. If you were not selected as a scholar, you are not eligible to re-apply.
  • Scholars will be notified immediately following judging and scholarships will be paid for Spring Semester 2015.
