UT Promise Information

UT Promise is a student-success-oriented scholarship program that requires students to complete volunteer service hours and meet with a volunteer mentor each semester to ensure a successful student experience! This innovative scholarship is available to students who qualify for the Tennessee HOPE scholarship and whose family-adjusted gross income is under $75,000/year starting fall 2024. UT Promise covers the last dollar amount of tuition and mandatory fees after all other financial aid is applied (i.e., Federal Pell Grant, HOPE scholarship, or other institutional scholarships). In addition to adjustments in income level, UT Promise guarantees a minimum $500 award per semester for qualifying students. Learn more about how last-dollar scholarships work!
Only current high school seniors entering UT as a first-time freshmen are eligible to apply through tnAchieves; current college students must apply through UT.
The 2024 UT Promise scholarship application deadline is December 15, 2023!
