Tennessee Scholarships

If you love Americana, you’ll love Tennessee. The Volunteer State has a strong heritage of American folk culture, particularly when it comes to music. Memphis is recognized as one of the birthplaces of the blues, and Nashville continues to be a leader in country-pop.

Tennessee also has plenty to offer in the way of higher education. The University of Tennessee offers all the resources you’d expect from a flagship university, and smaller institutions like the University of the South provide the intimate atmosphere of a liberal arts college.

If you’re attending school in the Volunteer State, financial aid will probably be a top priority. Luckily, there are several Tennessee scholarship opportunities, and going to school doesn’t have to break the bank.

Popular Tennessee Scholarships

Some of the most popular Tennessee scholarships come in the form of state-funded financial aid. Programs like the Tennessee HOPE Access Grant and the Tennessee General Assembly Merit Scholarship are just a couple of the options available.

The next step for finding Tennessee scholarships is institutional aid. Tennessee colleges fund a variety scholarship programs to help their students manage tuition costs.

One such program is the University of Tennessee – Knoxville’s Arch E. McClanahan Agricultural Memorial Scholarship. This merit scholarship is designed for UT students pursuing agricultural science.

Additionally, Rhodes College sponsors the Tennessee Academic Scholars Program, for in-state students whose standardized test scores are in the 95th national percentile.

Applying for Tennessee Scholarships

Many Tennessee scholarships are designed to support particular career paths. The Wilder-Nafeh Technical Skills Grant is intended for students enrolled at a Tennessee Technology Center.

Loan forgiveness agreements like the Tennessee Math and Science Teacher Loan Forgiveness are ideal for students who plan on staying in Tennessee after graduation. These programs don’t need to be repaid if you teach in a Tennessee public school district for two years per year you receive the loan.
