This four-year program provides full scholarship support.  Your degree is not limited, but you will share a special curriculum with your class.  A special early application is required for consideration for this program.
  • Midway Honors Scholars program, specially designed for exceptional transfer students from community colleges and other universities. This two-year scholarship program provides an honors-enriched curriculum and support for special opportunities, i.e., study abroad, exchange, and undergraduate research.  This program requires special application before your first semester at ETSU.
  • Fine & Performing Arts Scholars program, specially designed for students with artistic talent who desire a new and unique approach to educating artists for the 21st century. Out-of-state and limited in-state tuition scholarships are available, and the program requires a special application.  Class size is limited, so check the web site for details on how to apply.
