Applications open JANUARY 6, 2017  / Deadline MARCH 15, 2017>> April 3, 2017


Every year, the 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. 


Please read all of the information below before you begin the application to ensure you properly fill out all of the information. Once you have read all of the below, click Apply Now at the bottom of the page. Do not skip to the bottom!

Q. What are the criteria for Texas Tech Parents Association Scholarships?
