TTU Board of Trustees to meet Thursday

The Tennessee Tech Board of Trustees will meet on Thursday, March 12. An item of interest includes the new Tech Promise scholarship.

COOKEVILLE – TheTennessee Tech Board of Trustees will hold its quarterly meeting on Thursday, March 12 at 1:30 p.m. in the Roaden University Center room 282 (formerly the multipurpose room).  

An item of interest includes the new Tech Promise scholarship.

The Tech Promise – a new last-dollar scholarship to help make sure high-achieving, low-income students have access to the opportunity that a Tennessee Tech education represents – will be considered by the university’s Board of Trustees at this week’s meeting. If approved, Tech Promise will start this fall with students new to the university this fall: Tech’s incoming freshmen class and new transfer students.

As a last-dollar scholarship for eligible students, the Tech Promise will cover the cost of tuition and mandatory fees not met by other financial aid.

To be eligible, a student must be a full-time undergraduate, receive the Tennessee HOPE scholarship, receive any level of federal Pell grant and have a family adjusted gross income under $40,000.

Students will not have to complete a separate application for the Tech Promise. The university’s financial aid office will determine if a student is eligible using information it already has received from a student’s FAFSA. If a student is eligible, Tech Promise will automatically be awarded to them.

The Audit & Business Committee will meet at 8:30 a.m. followed by the Academic & Student Affairs Committee.
