Each year the University Honors (UHON) Program awards exclusive 4-year renewable scholarships to freshmen selected for the UHON Program. These scholarships are funded by the Wiliam E. Brock Jr., Paul Koblentz and Robert M. "Bobbie" Yates Scholarship endowments. Brock, Koblentz and Yates Scholarships are of equal value and are selected using the same application process.
These scholarships are renewable for up to eight semesters, as long as the student remains in good standing with the UHON Program. The student must maintain at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA and make at least 24 hours progress toward graduation each year.
To be considered for a UHON Scholarship, a student must submit both the University Honors Program Application and the UTC Application for Undergraduate Admissions no later than December 1 of the senior year in high school. (Students are encouraged to submit the Undergraduate Admissions application by November 1.) Selection for UHON Scholarships is based on the quality of the complete UHON application file, which includes high school academic record, ACT or SAT scores, teacher evaluations, extracurricular activities, essays and interviews.
A UHON Scholarship will be combined with other UTC Institutional Scholarships, such as the Chancellor's, Provost's, or MOCS Scholarships, and with TN Lottery Scholarships, and other outside scholarships, as long as the total award does not exceed the cost of attendance as determined by the Financial Aid Office.
The UHON Program can not make up for other scholarships or lottery funds you do not receive because of failure to meet deadlines or other eligibility requirements for those funds. UHON scholarship awards are announced at the conclusion of our application process, some time in early to mid-March.
New UHON students for fall 2013 will receive a UHON Scholarship of $1,000 per year, and if they choose to live in the UHON community in Lockmiller Apts. they will receive an additional housing stipend of $3,000 per year. These UHON scholarships, when combined with other university scholarships and the TN lottery scholarships yielded the following total scholarship packages:
With Chancellor's Scholarship: $12,000 per year
