To be eligible for this scholarship, first-time freshmen should first apply for admission. The next step is to apply for scholarships. Both applications are required for candidates to be considered for this scholarship.
Since funding is limited, consideration will only be given to students entering UTC in the fall semester and who meet the following criteria:
• UTC Admissions file (application, application fee, high school transcript, and *any/all ACT/SAT scores) completed by December 1, 2023 (qualifying test scores/GPA must also be submitted to UTC Admissions by December 1, 2023 as well);
• 3.75 GPA and 29 ACT *Super Score (1330 SAT);
• Online scholarship application submitted by the due date.
*UTC can only generate a Super Score for scores reported to UTC Admissions. Therefore, students must submit Any/All scores to UTC Admissions by/before the December 1 deadline for Chancellor's Scholarship consideration.
Students may receive an additional $4,500 in Tennessee HOPE Lottery Scholarship funds, if eligible. The TN HOPE Scholarship program does not use super scores.
This scholarship cannot be stacked with other renewable scholarships or endowed scholarships offered through the UTC Financial Aid and Scholarships or Admissions offices.
Apply early. Scholarship funds are limited and the awarding process is competitive. Meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee a student will receive a scholarship. The best way to improve your candidacy is to submit all required materials as soon as possible.
