Please take a moment to review the different scholarship and grant categories listed below. All Tennessee Tech institutional scholarships and grants are competitive and funds are limited. Although we make every effort to recognize outstanding students, no scholarships/grants are guaranteed.
Admissions Scholarships and Grants
University-funded scholarships and grants for incoming freshman and transfer students. These scholarships are awarded based on various criteria including, but not limited to, academic merit, financial need, extracurricular activities, and demonstrated leadership abilities.
Admissions scholarships and grants are renewable for a specified number of semesters as long as the student maintains the renewal eligibility requirements.
All scholarships and grants are competitive and based on funding. Students who qualify may only receive one Admissions Scholarship or Grant.
Departmental & Donor-Funded Scholarships
Departments and offices on campus award scholarships to new, transfer, and currently enrolled students. Departmental and donor-funded scholarships are for varying amounts and are based on varying criteria. Review the criteria of any Tennessee Tech scholarship with the Search Scholarships feature in ScholarWeb portal. You may also wish to contact the department of your major to inquire about specific scholarships and eligibility requirements.
Unlike other Tennessee Tech Scholarships, athletic scholarships are not handled by the Scholarship Office. For more information on scholarships in Athletics, contact the Tennessee Tech Athletic Department at 1-800-825-3948 and speak to a coach in the sports program you are interested in joining.
