While every scholarship fund has its own specific eligibility criteria which the donor establishes at the fund’s creation, most but not all, scholarships require that you:

    • Be a graduating high school senior from a Hamilton County, TN school
    • Demonstrate financial need
    • Have applied to or have been accepted to attend a regionally accredited two or four year, technical, non-proprietary or community college or university
    • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher

There is no charge to apply for a scholarship and every scholarship is a charitable grant so you will not need to pay it back.
