GEICO’s Meme 4 Money Creativity Scholarship
Phi Theta Kappa members aren’t just smart — they’re also incredibly funny and creative. Last year, GEICO launched its first scholarship program allowing Phi Theta Kappa members to get creative.
Students were asked to provide the most “meme-able” caption for seven photos provided by GEICO. Members had the opportunity to vote for their favorites online, and the five winners received $1,000 each.
Fifteen Phi Theta Kappa members have been selected as 2016 Guistwhite Scholarship recipients and have received $75,000 in scholarships.
The scholarship is named in honor of the late Dr. Jack Guistwhite and his widow, Margaret. The Guistwhites established the first designated transfer scholarship for Phi Theta Kappa members at Florida Atlantic University in 1975.
Each of the 15 Guistwhite Scholars has received a $5,000 scholarship.
