Apply now for 2013-2014 scholarships at Tennessee Tech

Students planning to attend Tennessee Tech University next fall should apply for scholarships now.

More than 550 scholarships are available to TTU students, and the time to apply for the 2013-2014 academic year is now. The scholarship application system is open until December 15.

TTU offers a variety of generous scholarships funded by the university and private donors. In fall 2012, more than a quarter of the freshmen class received nearly 800 academic scholarships worth more than $1.8 million.

After completing one scholarship application in ScholarWeb, TTU’s scholarship database, current and prospective students will be reviewed for all scholarships for which they meet the criteria. Students may search within ScholarWeb to determine their eligibility for different scholarships and see which ones require additional documentation, such as letters of recommendation or essays. Students can enter various academic information, such as major, ACT score and grade point average, to narrow the scholarship search.

The Financial Aid Office at TTU also helps students identify other available financial resources based on an individual’s needs. Basic information about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, grants, loans, work study programs and non-TTU funded scholarships, such as the Hope Scholarship, is available at www.tntech.edu/financialaid/home.

Prospective students, including incoming freshmen and transfer students, do not have to be admitted to TTU to apply for scholarships for 2013-2014. They can apply for admission to TTU and immediately apply for scholarships. Current TTU students are encouraged to apply for scholarships each year, as new or different opportunities may become available.

The scholarship application must be completed and submitted online by 11:59 p.m. December 15, 2012.
