Every year, Texas Tech Parents Association awards thousands of dollars in scholarships funded by donations to our scholarship endowment. These scholarships are awarded to incoming freshmen, new transfers and current undergraduate students. TTPA scholarships are awarded based on a variety of factors including academic merit, financial need, and field of study.  Our scholarships are in addition to University or Alumni scholarships, and require a separate application, which is accessed on this website.
