James H. Quillen Graduate Scholars

East Tennessee State University annually honors graduate students who receive the James H. Quillen scholarship. These scholarships were created through a bequest to ETSU by the late James H. Quillen who represented the First Congressional District of Tennessee for 34 years.

Congressman Quillen requested that the endowment proceeds be used to fund scholarships for graduate, undergraduate, and medical students from the First Congressional District on the basis of scholastic endeavors, school and community leadership, volunteer services and activities, work experience, and financial need.

To apply for this scholarship visit the "Search & Apply" page of the ETSU Scholarship Office's website. This page will guide you through locating and applying for eligible scholarships. If you have problems applying for the scholarship, please contact the Scholarship Office at (423) 439-7094
