Scholarship Information

Each program in the college offers at least one scholarship based on diversity criteria. Amounts are based upon available funds. Recipients are selected by each program. The Chancellor’s Diversity scholarship was created to provide opportunities and funding for minority students to receive financial support to begin or continue their academic progression at UTHSC. Criteria include:

  1. Fully meeting the minimum academic standards for the program.
  2. Minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
  3. Providing financial aid with all required documentation to receive the award (FAFSA, etc.)

This is an achievement award and is not need based so the EFC (expected family contribution is not a factor in the awarding of this scholarship.

Nominations are requested in April and due May 1. All programs are encouraged to nominate incoming students. College committee selects one student and one or two alternates in rank order in case selected student declines. Assistant/associate dean for student affairs forwards the selected student(s) to the Office of Financial Aid who then notifies the Alumni Association.
The McCain Bowman scholarship is for students within the HIIM program to receive financial support for travel and participate in professional meetings.
