TN Promise Applications



Tennessee Promise Scholarship

High school seniors can apply for Tennessee Promise here between August 17 and November 2, 2015.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must meet the following deadlines and requirements:

  • Apply to the program by November 2, 2015.
  • File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15, 2016 at www.fafsa.gov. For families who have not yet filed taxes for the prior year, estimates can be used on the FAFSA and updated once taxes have been filed.
  • Attend two mandatory meetings led by the local partnering organization. Failure to attend the mandatory meeting will result in loss of the Tennessee Promise.
  • Complete 8 hours of community service for each semester they receive Tennessee Promise funding, to be completed before the start of each term. That means they must complete their first 8 hours the summer before enrolling in a community college or TCAT. Partnering organizations will assist students in finding community service opportunities in their area.
  • Apply to and enroll in an eligible institution. Some partnering organizations may ask students to apply to an eligible college program by February 15, 2016. Though this deadline is not an official requirement, it is highly encouraged.
  • Complete FAFSA verification, if required by the student's institution, by August 1, 2016.
