Tennessee Tech’s scholarship application must be completed each year to be considered for departmental scholarships. For incoming students, the application is also required for most Admissions scholarships.
Renewable departmental scholarships require an application each year in order to be renewed. Admissions scholarships renew automatically as long as all requirements are met.
Before You Begin
To complete the University’s scholarship application, new students must be admitted to Tennessee Tech. The admissions application for Fall 2023 is open now.
- » Do I have to submit an essay to apply for scholarships?
All students should complete the goals statement and career plans essays in ScholarWeb. Some scholarships may require an additional essay or portfolio. Essays are the best way to make yourself stand out as a candidate, so try to be personal and thoughtful in your responses.
Will I need a letter of recommendation?
All students must enter the name and email address of at least one and up to three recommenders in order to submit the scholarship application. Recommendations are only required by a few scholarships but serve to enhance your overall application. It is courteous to reach out and ask if someone is willing to write you a recommendation before entering their information on the scholarship application.
