Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University and Louisiana Community and Technical College System have created the Bonaventure Scholarship transfer agreement for students active in Phi Theta Kappa.
FranU and LCTCS are committed to providing more transfer opportunities to those Louisiana citizens who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree after completion of an associate’s degree.
PTK exists to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students, and to provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors leadership, service and fellowship programing.
To become a member of PTK a student must be enrolled in a regionally accredited institution offering an associate degree program, have completed at least 12 hours of coursework that may be applied to an associate degree and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0.
The agreement formally recognizes that through increased transfer opportunities, LCTCS and FranU are collaboratively providing more ways for students to pursue their higher education dreams.
Bonaventure Scholarship Criteria
Students who are PTK graduates can receive an annual scholarship, contingent on the availability of funds, renewable for up to one year, at FranU upon meeting the following criteria: Students must have completed an associate’s degree within the calendar year they plan to enroll at FranU; student must be an active PTK member at the time of graduation; student must have completed the FAFSA and listed FranU as a recipient of FAFSA data; student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5; student must have applied to FranU; student must enroll full-time at FranU within the calendar year of their completion of an associate’s degree; student must maintain full-time enrollment; and student must be in good academic standing while enrolled
