We are excited to announce that our 2020 Scholarship Application is now open!
The deadline for scholarship applications is March 31st.
Every year, Texas Tech Parents Association awards thousands of dollars in scholarships funded by donations to our scholarship endowments. Scholarships provided by Texas Tech Parents Association advance access to higher education by providing timely financial assistance to students. Scholarship applications are available in four categories: entering freshmen, returning undergraduate students, new transfers, and graduate students. TTPA scholarships are awarded based on a variety of factors including academic merit, financial need, field of study, and quality of essays. Our scholarships are in addition to Texas Tech University or Texas Tech Alumni Association scholarships, and require a separate application, which is accessed on this website.
