STATE NEWS — Applications for the TN Promise scholarship, which provides two years of tuition-free attendance at a community or technical college, opened on August 1. All high school seniors interested in the scholarship must register online before November 1 to be qualified.

Tennessee Promise is both a scholarship and mentoring program focused on increasing the number of students that attend college in our state. It provides students a last-dollar scholarship, meaning the scholarship will cover the cost of tuition and mandatory fees not covered by the Pell grant, the HOPE scholarship, or the Tennessee Student Assistance Award. Students may use the scholarship at any of the state’s 13 community colleges and 27 colleges of applied technology including the Tennessee College of Applied Technology in Shelbyville and Motlow State Community College.

Applications are available at The site also contains a handy checklist for students (and parents) to make sure they meet all relevant deadlines. •
