UT Promise Scholarship is available
Current undergraduate students at any University of Tennessee system campus are now able to apply for the UT Promise Scholarship, a free tuition program for qualifying students who are Tennessee residents and who's home has a family income of less than $50,000. The "last dollar scholarship" program guarantees it will pay tuition and fees for participants after they've exhausted other financial aid offers. The program has received 2,560 applications to date from first-time-in-college freshmen. "I am thrilled that we are able to offer this scholarship to our current undergraduate students who attend our UT campuses across the state," says UT President Randy Boyd. "We are committed to helping our students achieve their dream of obtaining an undergraduate degree, and the UT Promise scholarship helps alleviate some of the financial burden many college students face." Current UT students wishing to apply for UT Promise must complete the UT Promise Application for current UT students by Feb. 1, 2020, file the FAFSA and complete eight hours of community service by July 1, 2020. Students must be enrolled full-time, and be eligible for the Tennessee HOPE scholarship.
