A one-time, lifetime, membership fee of $65 (either by check or money order made payable to "PTK/QCC") must accompany your completed application.

Scholarships and Grants

Lambda Sigma Chapter members of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society currently enrolled at QCC are advised to visit the official Phi Theta Kappa website at for current and upcoming scholarship offerings. Dr. Emily Tai and/or Dr. Paris Svoronos will also update members via e-mail of upcoming scholarship opportunities so, it is a good practice to make sure the e-mail address you provided on your membership application is a current address that you are still using.  As a Queensborough student, you are strongly advised to regularly monitor your Tigermail account as well for scholarship opportunities from the College, CUNY, and external organizations.
