UA-PTC Students

Foundation Scholarships

All currently enrolled UA-PTC students are eligible to apply for most scholarships; there are still a few that are only available to second-year students (students that have completed more than 30 credit hours). All applications require an essay, letter of recommendation from a UA-PTC faculty or staff member, proof of grades, and proof of financial aid. Please read the application carefully! It is the student’s sole responsibility to insure all eligibility requirements are met and the application is complete.
