Three Clarksville-Montgomery County High Schools have recently received special designation from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville, granting specific scholarship opportunities to students to access one of Tennessee’s premier public universities.
The Flagship Scholarship is offered to admitted freshmen who graduate from a designated Flagship high school. Northeast, West Creek, and Kenwood high schools have all been named as UT-Knoxville Flagship schools.
The Flagship Scholarship is a scholarship program provided by Flagship Universities across the 50 states. There are only 38 high schools in Tennessee that qualify for this designation.
According to the University of Tennessee – Knoxville, “when combined with other federal, state, and institutional aid, this scholarship covers a student’s tuition and mandatory fees for up to eight (8) semesters.”
The scholarship is automatically granted to students who meet all of the criteria, with no additional application required. Students must be a Tennessee resident and U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Students must also be first-time freshmen who enter UT in the fall semester immediately following graduation.
The scholarship does specify that an admission application must be submitted by the December 15 deadline and a FAFSA application must be sent by February 1 prior to enrollment.
Students who are interested in learning more about this opportunity should contact their school counselor or visit https://onestop.utk.edu/scholarships/tri-star-scholarship-program/for information.
