Phi Theta Kappa’s Spring Common Scholarship Application is now open. If you will be continuing your education at a two-year college in the fall, then these scholarships are tailor-made for you!

More than $260,000 will be awarded through scholarships on the Spring Common Scholarship Application. The deadline to apply is April 30.

“Applying early is key to a successful scholarship application,” said Heather Johnson, Phi Theta Kappa’s Director of Scholarship Programs. “As you might expect, the applications we receive are high-quality, and the process is competitive. But, you’ll never receive a scholarship if you never apply for one.”

Below is an in-depth look at the scholarships offered on the Spring Common Scholarship Application. You may apply for any or all of the scholarships for which you qualify. Learn even more and apply today on the Scholarships webpage.
