Robert N. Murrell Scholarship, Deadline: Sept 16

Open to all Tennessee State University  students. I encourage all students to try out for this scholarship.

If you are a freshman, notice that there are awards of $700 for first; $500 for second; and $300 for third.

If you an upperclass student (30 or more hours), there are awards of $700 for first; $500 for second; and $300 for third.

Even if you do not win, you can learn from those who win and use what you have learned to do better next year.

You can fill out an application and abstract online. You might even ask a person good in writing to check over your material before submitting.
