MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - More than 10,000 high school seniors have not signed up for the TN Promise program. According to a news release, TN Promise applications are down 20 percent across the state.
The deadline to apply for the class of 2021 is November 2, therefore, tnAchieves is urging students to apply at tnpromise.gov. High schoolers that don’t meet the deadline will be permanently ineligible for the scholarship.
TnAchieves said TN Promise gives students the opportunity to access last-dollar scholarships. Applicants also have access to critical non-financial supports as part of the program, including a volunteer mentor from their community.
Students that need application support can reach out to tnAchieves by emailing tnAchieves@tnAchieves.org.
