Every year, the Texas Tech Parents Association awards thousands of dollars in scholarships funded by contributions. These scholarships are awarded to deserving current undergraduate students as well as incoming freshmen and transfer students. TTPA scholarships are awarded based on a variety of factors including academic merit, financial need, and field of study. The Parents Association scholarships are in addition to University or Alumni scholarships, and require a separate application, which is accessed on this website.
