Clemmer College Scholarship Application

Clemmer College Scholarship Application Procedure

The Clemmer College supports students with scholarship awards! Each year, Clemmer College awards nearly $150,000 in scholarships to students.  Scholarship applicants must be currently enrolled at ETSU as a student or have been accepted to the university as a prospective student.  Scholarships criteria require students to be majoring in a program housed within the Clemmer College.

A description of each scholarship is available here.

Students applying for the need-based scholarships offered by the Clemmer College MUST complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered for need-based scholarships.  The FAFSA becomes available at between approximately October 1 and June 30 and information is sent to the ETSU Office of Financial Aid.  Please be aware that receiving a scholarship from the Clemmer College may affect your overall financial aid package.

The online application for the Clemmer College will be available November 2018 through March 1, 2019.
