Northeast State awards assistance to students to meet their college expenses through scholarships administered by the Northeast State Foundation or other sponsoring agencies that establish programs for Northeast State students. Northeast State scholarship awards are based on the availability of funds and the criteria set forth by the appropriate program sponsor and are subject to change.

Northeast State Scholarships are defined as competitive awards. Competitive scholarship awards are based primarily on academic merit with consideration given to a student’s major, county of residence, demonstrated leadership skills, and motivation among other selection criteria. Financial need is not necessarily a prerequisite for receiving a Northeast State scholarship award. No awards are defined as guaranteed scholarships. Neither academic merit nor financial need guarantee a scholarship award to a student who has applied for admission to Northeast State.

The Northeast State Online General Scholarship Application serves as the one application for the following programs:

Recipients of the Academic Work Scholarship (AWS) are required to work 75 hours per semester in return for a scholarship applied to their maintenance fees. Residents of the state of Tennessee must submit a Northeast State Online General Scholarship Application to be considered. Applicants must be:

  • First-time freshmen with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0, an ACT composite score of 21 or above, SAT equivalent, ACCUPLACER®, or math diagnostic test results which allow them to enroll in college-level courses. These students will receive priority placement.


  • Transfer and other than first-time freshman students with a minimum cumulative college GPA of 3.0 earned on the basis of at least 12 credit hours and having completed Learning Support requirements.

The following scholarships (with basic major and academic performance criteria listed) are those most often supported by donations from Northeast State students, student organizations, faculty, staff, and community members. Additional eligibility requirements including but not limited to demonstrated financial need, residency, minimum GPA or ACT scores, college-level placement, major, enrollment status, hours earned, or priority selection apply to each scholarship award. Scholarships are competitive, and students must apply for consideration by submitting the Northeast State Online General Scholarship Application. Renewal criteria vary by award.

Scholarship awards may be made available through programs that utilize special grant funding, private sponsorship, or emergency determinations. Consideration for these awards may be dependent upon enrollment in specific majors, documentation of need, or may be period specific. Eligibility requirements and application deadlines vary by program.



Unless otherwise noted in individual scholarship criteria, eligible applicants must demonstrate college-level course placement as determined by the appropriate ACT scores, SAT equivalents, ACCUPLACER® test results, math diagnostic test results, or successful completion of all required Learning Support courses by the scholarship application deadline.

Eligible applicants must not have earned associate degrees or higher by the beginning of the 2017 Fall Semester. Exemptions for Special Scholarship Programs may exist according to a specific program’s eligibility criteria.

Additional eligibility requirements may apply for individual scholarships. Individual scholarship award criteria determine eligible applicants for each program.

Applicants are matched to scholarship selection pools based upon the information supplied on the Northeast State Online General Scholarship Application.

Fall and spring enrollments must be complete by the last day to add a class for the full fall and/or spring term. Scholarship funds are not available during the summer term unless indicated in a specific program's award criteria.

Recipients are limited to no more than four semesters of scholarship assistance from the various award programs. Students who have received scholarship funds for four terms are no longer eligible to continue on the scholarship or to apply for new awards. Exemptions for Special Scholarship Programs and programs with attempted hour provisions may exist according to an individual scholarship award.

Scholarship recipients are notified in writing or by phone call. Scholarship recipients are designated according to various award schedules during the period May to August. Funds are applied to student accounts by the start of fall term classes. Scholarship awards are first applied to any unmet tuition balances that recipients have due before any of the remaining funds are disbursed to the students.
