Tennessee Promise is a scholarship program offered to any student who graduates from a Tennessee High School. Participants may attend any Tennessee Community College or technical college for up to two years tuition-free. To qualify, applicants need only to complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), attend two mandatory meetings and perform eight hours of community service. Once in college, students must maintain a 2.0 GPA and perform additional community service each semester.
Registration opens around mid-August and generally runs through Nov. 1.
