Financial Aid and Scholarships

Three types of financial aid are available for students: scholarships, loans, and part-time employment. According to the needs of the family and student, these can be offered individually or in combination. Visit One Stop Student Services for details and application information.

Since 2004, the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship Program (or HOPE Scholarship) has been a resource for eligible students and can be combined with other scholarships and financial aid. For more information on the HOPE Scholarship and other forms of financial assistance, visit the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation.

Tickle College of Engineering Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of private and corporate donors, the college and its departments annually award more than $1 million in scholarships to qualified undergraduate students. To apply for engineering scholarships, students must be accepted into both UT and the college.

Incoming freshmen, current/returning UT students, and new transfer students must apply by submitting the appropriate scholarship form. Students do need not to apply for specific scholarships as the Scholarship Committee will match qualified students with available awards.

Scholarships are awarded each academic year in the spring for the upcoming year. The college evaluates the eligibility of a student for a college scholarship based on many factors, including academic qualification (high school GPA and ACT scores), extracurricular activities at high school, leadership roles, awards received at high school, and other factors as may be specified by a scholarship award donor, all on a competitive and holistic basis. For more information, contact the college Academic and Student Affairs Office at 865-974-2454 or visit 101 Perkins Hall.
