CLASS OF 2020 SCHOLARSHIPS
One of the best sources of scholarship and financial aid information is the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office at the college to which you are applying. Be sure to visit each college’s website and follow that individual school’s instructions regarding any required forms and/or deadlines.
Once you complete your profile you’ll have access to our database of more than 1.5 million scholarships. That’s $3.4 billion dollars in funding – all available to students like you!
This is a great resource for virtual campus tours, plus it has a scholarship search engine!

We’ve made some adjustments to our scholarship tier structure. The in-state Volunteer Scholarship program recognizes students with an exemplary academic record based on a combination of GPA and test scores. It is available to incoming freshmen with a 3.8 UT Weighted Core GPA and a 28 ACT/1300 SAT superscore or higher–an adjustment made to support a greater amount of students on their path to Rocky Top. Visit onestop.utk.edu/scholarships/volunteer/ for more information.
TRI-STAR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
UT is committed to providing Tennesseans with a high-quality, affordable education. We are proud to introduce this program which helps Tennessee residents access the Volunteer experience through three scholarships (details below). This program is designed to support students and families with demonstrated financial need on their path to a UT degree. Visit tiny.utk.edu/tri-star for more information.
UT PROMISE SCHOLARSHIP
The new UT Promise scholarship guarantees free tuition and mandatory fees for qualifying Tennessee residents (annual family income of $50,000 or less and receive and maintain the HOPE scholarship). Eligible students are required to complete 8 volunteer service hours and must participate in mentoring each semester.
TENNESSEE PLEDGE SCHOLARSHIP
The Tennessee Pledge scholarship covers tuition, mandatory fees, AND room and board for qualified students. It’s our commitment to meet the direct cost of attendance for in-state students with an annual family income of $40,000 or less (including untaxed income and assets). UT will automatically offer this scholarship to those who qualify.
The Flagship Scholarship, when combined with the HOPE Scholarship, offers assistance toward tuition and mandatory fees for in-state freshmen who graduate from one of 32 designated “Flagship” high schools.
