Time to Apply for Chattanooga State Scholarships

Will you help us spread the word? It is time for students to apply for scholarships at Chattanooga State for fall 2015. Our priority deadline is March 1 for the upcoming academic year. Students who complete the application by the priority date will receive preference with regard to scholarship awards. Both Tennessee Promise eligible and adult students are encouraged to apply.

In partnership with Chattanooga State Community College and the Chattanooga State Foundation, more than $800,000 in combined scholarship funding is provided annually for qualified Chattanooga State students, helping them prepare for careers or transfer to four-year universities.

Whether you know a student eligible for Tennessee Promise or an adult student looking for financial resources for college, many of Chattanooga State’s scholarships are designed to help with other costs beyond tuition, such as textbooks and technology, that are not covered by Tennessee Promise and other forms of financial aid. In addition, we have scholarship opportunities designed to meet the unique needs of adult students who are not eligible for Tennessee Promise.
