Personal Financial Planning


The Personal Financial Planning program awards scholarships to students based on excellence in academics, leadership, financial need, and other specific criteria set forth by individual scholarships.  A scholarship committee made up of three or more faculty members will review eligible applications and make awards annually.  Students will be contacted during the spring semester to accept or decline scholarship awards.

To apply for a scholarship, students must complete the general TTU scholarship application, and have their transcripts, S.A.T., or A.C.T. scores on file.  A letter of recommendation from a faculty member is not required for undergraduate scholarships. 

Check your TTU email account for notification of scholarship awards.

Students who receive a scholarship are required to write a thank-you note to the scholarship donor every semester.  Failing to submit a thank-you letter will result in your scholarship being revoked.  In addition, awardees must be enrolled full-time in the major associated with their scholarship and maintain the GPA specified by the scholarship each semester.

For more information, please visit the College of Human Sciences scholarship information page.

Graduate Students: You do not need to fill out the general TTU scholarship application, but only the Graduate School scholarship application.  This application is due January 15.
