Anthony Oneal to speak Friday, Nov. 8, at 6 pm, and an Opportunity for STEM majors at TSU for Spring 2020

Anthony Oneal, author of DEBT-FREE DEGREE

As a TSU student, I have one suggestion: read your email. And if you are curious, google and research.

On Friday, Nov. 8, 2019, Anthony Oneal will give a talk on How to Get Rich: Wealth Attainment at 6:00 pm in Poag Auditorium, located in the Humanities building at Tennessee State University. The email says the event is open to the public.

The program is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs: Office of the Dean of Students.

Who is Anthony Oneal? Do a little googling.

At 19, he was homeless. He turned his life around, becoming “committed to helping students find and pursue their passions.”

He is also the author of two books.

From website: “Since 2003, Anthony has helped hundreds of thousands of students. He’s the national bestselling author of GRADUATE SURVIVAL GUIDE: 5 MISTAKES YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MAKE IN COLLEGE and travels the country spreading his encouraging message to help teens and young adults start their lives off right. His latest book, DEBT-FREE DEGREE, launches October 2019.”

Under Resources, there is a scholarship search tool, entitled DEBT-FREE DEGREE SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH.

If you are a high school student, you can try for the November Scholarship Giveaway, one $1,500 scholarship and one $1,000 scholarship.

Tennessee State University Students (STEM majors) only:

Pay attention to your student email. This is how Tennessee State University officially communicates with all its students, and often scholarships or programs open only to TSU students will be sent there.

One email detailed the Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP) program.

The deadline is Wed, Nov. 20, 2019, for the Spring 2020 semester.

If you have declared a major in the following STEM disciplines: Applied and Industrial Technologies, Agricultural Sciences, Architectural Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematical Sciences, or Mechanical Engineering, you should check out the program.

Some other qualifications for participation are

Maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher for Mentor or Tutor positions, and 2.8 or higher for Research Assistant position. Research Assistants are responsible for securing a research position with a faculty member in one of the STEM disciplines.

The email goes into much more detail, so you can search your email by typing in Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance.

One of the benefits of starting this program now or as a sophomore is to be eligible to receive a $32,000/year stipend as a participant in the Bridge to Doctorate (BD) Program.  –This is where you can find the link to the application.

For additional information, please contact the TLSAMP office: Dr. Dee Green, TLSAMP Director, 615-963-1397 or

From the website: “Students who do not meet the eligibility criteria are eligible to enter into an agreement that allows them to demonstrate their capability and thereby become eligible for TLSAMP funding the following semester.”
