$10,000 Scholarship Challenge—6 week Scholarship Tigers Challenge to Pay for the 2019-2020 Semester

If you are a Tennessee State University student, are you wondering how you will pay for the 2019-2020 semester?

I want to challenge you.

Apply for more than $10,000 or more in scholarships, internships, or other opportunities in the next six weeks.

We will meet for the next 6 weeks on Thursdays (March 14, March 21, March 28, April 4, April 11, April 18) from 11:10-12:05 pm in room 310, TSU Writing Center, Student Success Center, also known as the Learning Resource Center.

Arrive early (11:00 am or so) to make sure you are signed up for the workshop.

In the next 6 weeks, we will explore ways to apply for more than $10,000 in scholarships, internships, and other opportunities.

Also, Mr. Turner will tell you of a unique opportunity to sign up for individual coaching sessions where you can work on your writing. You will gradually improve your confidence, your ability to sculpt sentences, and learn a few grammar rules along the way.

Along with improving your writing, you will also work towards applying for $10,000 or more in scholarship money.

The added benefit of attending these sessions will be to improve your writing, making you a better writer in your English classes as well as all your other classes.

You can also potentially earn scholarship cash too.

I Can’t Make These Workshops—What Do I Do?

For Tennessee State University students only:

If you can’t make the workshops above, then I invite you to sign up for a one hour appointment in the TSU Writing Center and I will give you the workshop individually or small groups (talk with me about how you can set this up).


Instructions below on how to make an appointment for individual workshop sessions.

First, you must make an appointment on the scheduling system.


If you already registered and you haven’t signed on this semester, you might have to update your profile. Students are required now to use their TSU email; TSU student’s email follow this pattern: username@my.tnstate.edu.


If you are not registered with the system, use the information below.

How to set up an appointment for the first time:


Go to the above website. You will used the email address you have as a TSU student, following this pattern: username@my.tnstate.edu

Once you create an account for the schedule, you can see when I, Michael Turner, am available.

You would put “scholarship workshop” for the session.

Go to the above link and register.  It will ask you questions.

Once you have registered, you can sign in to the schedule by putting in your username (email address) and the password you created.

Your student ID is your complete Tnumber.

Select “Writing Center” for the current TSU Writing Center schedule.

You cannot schedule for the day you register, but there are directions once you log on for what to do if you need an appointment for that same day.

 If you wish to email me instead, Mr. Mike Turner can be reached at mjturner@tnstate.edu. Give me the days, dates, and times you are available, and I will get back with you a confirmed appointment.
