Pellissippi State Community College is hosting Scholarship Day, an event to encourage and help eligible students to sign up for Tennessee Promise, on Sunday, Oct. 26.
Tennessee Promise is a “last-dollar” scholarship that will cover tuition and fees for community college students once other assistance has been applied. It gives high school graduates the opportunity to attend college essentially for free, beginning with spring 2015 graduates.
Although students won’t be eligible to receive funding until they begin college next fall, the deadline to apply for Tennessee Promise is Nov. 1.
Scholarship Day is noon-2 in the third-floor computer lab of the Educational Resources Center on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

“We’re inviting students to come out for Scholarship Day so we can help them through the process of signing up for Tennessee Promise,” said Rebecca Ashford, vice president of Student Affairs at Pellissippi State.
“It’s extremely important that students understand that they must meet the Nov. 1 deadline to qualify to receive Tennessee Promise funding. If a student misses this deadline, there will not be another opportunity to take advantage of the Promise scholarship.”
Pellissippi State also is hosting a number of informational sessions throughout October to share details about program requirements and deadlines, as well as to highlight the educational offerings at Pellissippi State. For a full list of those sessions, visit www.pstcc.edu/promise.
“The Tennessee Promise is an excellent opportunity for students throughout the state,” said Leigh Anne Touzeau, assistant vice president of Enrollment Services. “We hope the students in our region will take advantage of this scholarship at Pellissippi State.”
