UT Scholarships Increase
Available To Undergrads
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The University of Tennessee system has increased the amount a family can earn and still have a student qualify for a UT Promise scholarship.
UT Promise is a last-dollar scholarship that guarantees free tuition and fees after other financial aid is received.
It is available to undergraduate Tennessee residents enrolling at UT campuses.
UT announced that it is expanding eligibility to students with family incomes of under $60,000. The previous income limit was $50,000.
The change takes place next fall. In addition to money, the scholarship program matches students with mentors to help ensure their success.
