Learn more about the newest Phi Theta Kappa transfer scholarship and Neumann University in this brief Q&A.
Tell us about your college’s new transfer scholarship for Phi Theta Kappa members.
A PTK scholarship in the amount of $3,000 ($1,500 each semester) is given to incoming full-time transfer students. Students are considered for the scholarship at the time of application to the university and will need to submit a copy of their PTK membership card/record as a supplemental item with their application.
Why does your college feel it’s important to offer a scholarship opportunity for members?
Transfer students are a vital part of the Neumann community. Students who demonstrate strong academic performance at the community college should be rewarded.
Are there other transfer scholarships that could be stacked with your Phi Theta Kappa award?
Neumann offers three different merit scholarships for all full-time transfer students. Scholarships range from $9,000 to $13,000 depending on academic performance. The PTK scholarship is stackable with all merit scholarships.
Transfer students are also eligible for an on-campus grant should they decide to live on campus. Neumann also offers a Legacy Award for students who have siblings, parents, or grandparents who are alumni/graduates of Neumann.
What other opportunities are available for transfer students at your institution to assist them in successfully transitioning from community college?
Neumann offers a Transfer Orientation designed specifically for transfer students at the start of each term. Students are able to meet with advisors, purchase books, receive a student ID, and attend sessions on what to expect as a transfer student. Students will also be assigned an advisor upon enrolling at the university.
In your opinion, what is one of the most impressive things about your college?
Neumann University is a most welcoming community. From the moment I stepped foot on campus, people knew my name from Day 1, and I knew I had chosen the perfect place. You will feel like part of a family as soon as you visit.
Neumann is a Franciscan institution, so we do have a religious background. Being Franciscan simply means we are a kind, giving, and nurturing community. So many people have made Neumann successful in our short time as a university, so we continually want to give back to our community.
At Neumann, we not only want our students to do well in their studies and college life, but we also want them to do good. Help a neighbor in need, volunteer at a local food kitchen, and live a life that is both successful and ethical.
