MARTIN, Tenn. – The Parsons/Decatur County Higher Education Foundation will finance a variety of new scholarships for students attending the University of Tennessee at Martin Parsons Center in the upcoming academic year.

All new freshmen who qualify to receive the Tennessee Hope Lottery Scholarship will also receive the new Kickstart Scholarship, an additional $500 over the course of the year, if they maintain a 2.75 GPA.

The Parsons Reconnect Scholarship will be awarded to all new students over 25 years of age who begin a degree program at the UT Martin Parsons Center in the fall. Students receive $600 over the course of the year as part of this award.

Students who are already enrolled at the UT Martin Parsons Center and have served at least one year as a student ambassador can be considered for a Dr. Kelli Deere Leadership Scholarship. Students must have a 3.0 GPA to qualify. Two $5,000 scholarships will be awarded in the 2016-17 academic year.

Interested students need not submit an application; all those who qualify will be automatically considered for these awards.
