Phi Theta Kappa Financial Aid

Members of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the two-year college honor society, are named IDP PTK Scholars at Trinity College and receive a special PTK Scholarship if they meet certain criteria.  As a PTK Scholar at Trinity, you will receive a need-based financial aid award that will replace the loan portion of your financial aid package with a PTK scholarship, enabling you to graduate without financial aid debt from your time in IDP.
