Many Students Signing Up For Tennessee Promise

Tn PromiseMore than 800 students have already signed up for the Tennessee Promise in less than a week since enrollment opened.
The Tennessee Promise was signed into law in May and gives the opportunity for every graduating senior in Tennessee to attend community or technical college for free.
Since enrollment opened last Friday, an average of 200 applications a day have been turned in.
The Tennessee Promise will not be paid for by taxpayer dollars. It will be funded through an endowment set up using money from the Tennessee Lottery. It will be a scholarship that can be used at any of the state’s 13 community colleges, 27 colleges of applied technology or other eligible institution offering an associate’s degree program.
Applications are due Nov. 1st.
Dr Mary Lou Apple from Motlow College will be live on WMSR Monday morning at 8:30am to talk more about this program.
