Tennessee State University Foundation Scholarships open February 19, 2018

The following information is taken verbatim from a handout sent out by campus mail. These scholarships are open only to new and currently enrolled undergraduate TSU students.

Students interested in applying for TSU Foundation scholarships should go to the above website, beginning on Monday, February 19, 2018.

Deadline for applying for scholarships is Saturday, March 31, 2018.

Only on-line applications will be accepted.

All Foundation housed scholarships must be applied for on-line

Scholarship funding is limited and meeting the minimum requirements for a scholarship does not guarantee scholarship selection.

New and currently enrolled undergraduate students may apply.

For questions regarding the scholarship application process, students should contact Dr. Darlene Harris-Vasser at 615-963-5794.


Note: Do not simply fill out the application with minimal information. Include identifying information—for example, mention your position, the name of the organization, and include a brief description of what the organization does.

Here is a made up example:

Organizer—Sunshine Writers, helped to create a writers’ group that met at 6:00 am on Saturdays to spend an hour writing at Frodo’s, a local coffee shop in Birmingham, AL

  1. Kiara Morgan Says:

    Hi Mr.Turner, for the first scholarship is it legit? Because it’s asking for my social security. I just wanna make sure before I turn it in.

  2. Mike Turner Says:

    Yes, it is legitimate, but good question.

    After filling out the application and attaching the letter of recommendation, I would recommend sealing both of them in an envelope and walking it over to the school’s post office in the student center.

    You want to put this address on the envelope:

    The TSU Foundation
    c/o Bryan A. Collins Scholarship
    3500 John A. Merritt Blvd.
    Campus Box 9542
    Nashville, TN 37209-1651

    On the right hand side, you can see the scholarship winners over the years. I have known a few of them who have received the scholarship.
