Tennessee Pledge Scholarship

Scholarship Description
Accessibility to an education at Tennessee’s flagship land-grant university should be available to all citizens of the state. To achieve this accessibility for qualified students from low-income families, the University of Tennessee offers need-based scholarships to members of the fall entering freshman class who are Tennessee residents. These need-based scholarships are offered to admitted students with a family adjusted gross income of up to $36,000, which equates to approximately 200% of the federal poverty level. The scholarship, when combined with other federal, state, and institutional aid, will cover a student’s mandatory costs—tuition, fees, and room and board, as determined by UT—without the use of student loans. Criteria • Application deadline: Admission application must be postmarked by December 1, 2008. • Family adjusted gross income (AGI) of $36,000 or less • Tennessee resident • Matriculate for fall semester immediately following graduation from a Tennessee high school • Submit Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1 prior to enrollment (no scholarship application required) • Award is based on all offered gift aid, including the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship Award Length Four-year award (fifth year available for students who initially enroll and maintain enrollment in the Architectural degree program)
