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 the University of Tennessee’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for details and application information.
Since 2004, the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship Program (or HOPE Scholarship) has been a great 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 web site.
Tickle College of Engineering Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of private and corporate donors, the Tickle College of Engineering 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 the University of Tennessee and the Tickle College of Engineering.
Incoming freshmen, current/returning UT students and new transfer students must apply by submitting the appropriate scholarship application provided on the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website. 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. For more information, contact the Tickle College of Engineering Academic and Student Affairs Office at (865) 974-2454 or visit 101 Perkins Hall.
