Fall 2019 Brock Scholars Freshman Class
Prospective freshmen may apply to both the Brock Scholars Program and the HAM Program, but once they have accepted a place in one program, we will no longer consider their application for the other.
First, you must apply for admission to UTC. You do not need to wait for your admission decision from the Undergraduate Admissions Office, but you must initiate that application process – including paying the required admission fee – or we cannot consider your Brock Scholars application. You should submit the Undergraduate Admissions Application as soon as possible; some academic scholarships, such as the Chancellor’s and Provost’s Scholarships, are awarded on the basis of that application, and funds are limited, so late applicants may not be awarded.
After you have submitted the Undergraduate Admissions application, there is no additional fee to apply to the Brock Scholars Program. The Brock Scholars application is used for determining admission to the Brock Scholars Program and for the awarding of William E. Brock, Jr. Scholarships.
All of the materials on the following list must be submitted online no later than December 1, 2018 for your Brock Scholars application file to be complete. Please read the following instructions carefully before you begin.
A complete Brock Scholars application file consists of the following:
- Brock Scholars Application Form (to be posted here starting September 1) – You must fill out all sections of this
form. You may begin your application and save it to come back to and work on later.
When you've completed all sections, remember to click "Submit." If you simply save
it but don't submit it, we will not receive it properly.
- Resume – This document should include your participation in school extracurriculars (student
government, student organizations and clubs, honors societies, athletics, musical
groups, etc.), hobbies and interests, employment, travel experience, honors and awards,
and community and volunteer activities. Please make clear the level and duration of
your participation, including any leadership roles you assumed. This document must be in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format (preferred) or Microsoft Word
(.doc or .docx) format. If we cannot open your file, your application will be considered incomplete.
- Essay – An original piece of writing on the prescribed topic for this year (specified in the application), demonstrating sharp, original thinking
and showcasing your writing at its best. Again, this document must be in .pdf, .doc or .docx format.
- Teacher Recommendations - We require two recommendations from high school teachers; one must be a teacher of a writing-intensive course (English or another course in which you have done substantial writing assignments), and one must be a math or science teacher. Please do not substitute a family friend, coach, employer or other person who has not taught you in an academic course . NOTE: You must supply the names and email addresses of your two teachers well BEFORE December 1 so that they have time to submit the recommendations by the December 1 deadline.
If you have questions about how to submit your application, please email Honors-College@utc.edu or call 423-425-4128.
