Students are encouraged to apply for any outside scholarships that are available through different towns, civic organizations, or companies other than the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The application and eligibility process is determined by the organization/donor. Generally, these funds will be sent directly to UTC rather than to you. Often, donors will send the scholarship check to the student, paid to the order of UTC. Unless otherwise noted by the donor, our office reserves the right to distribute funds in the student's best interest. Additionally, All scholarships (state, institutional/departmental, & private outside) are considered in your total financial aid package and may result in a reduction of other financial aid awarded.
If you receive an outside scholarship check, please forward it to the following address along with any/all award correspondence from the donor. Be sure to write your UTC student ID on the check.
