Scholarships for Tennessee Residents

Are you a resident of Tennessee who hopes to go to college, but are a little daunted by the rising costs of a college education, or a current student who is struggling to pay tuition?

But did you know that just by being a resident or student in the state of Tennessee you are eligible for scholarships? Local and state governments have scholarships reserved for in-state students. Tennessee based companies and non-profits also like to support local students’ education by awarding scholarships.
