PTK allows you to learn, lead and partner with other academically talented and civically engaged students. You will also have the opportunity to travel locally, regionally and nationally, all the while gaining valuable learning and leadership experiences. Members of PTK may take advantage of a variety of transfer scholarship opportunities that are open only to members. Members are also eligible to apply for more than $30 million in transfer scholarships exclusively for PTK members from 800 four-year colleges and universities.
