The Fine & Performing Arts Scholarship
- 10 funded and 5 unfunded scholars admitted each fall
- 8 semesters of in-state or out-of-state tuition (if applicable)
- Most fees
In-state scholarships cover the costs of in-state tuition and fees for a
full-time student. If you receive a Tennessee Lottery Scholarship,
you can apply that scholarship towards the costs of housing and meals.
Border Counties (for more information)
Border County students are treated as in-state students for the
purposes of scholarship and fees. Border counties include:
North Carolina: Ashe, Avery, Haywood,
Madison, Mitchell, Watauga, and Yancey
Virginia: Grayson, Lee, Scott, Washington
Out-of-state scholarships, for students not residing in Tennessee,
cover the costs of out-of-state tuition for a full-time student. Students
will still need to fund in-state tuition and fees.
Academic Common Market (for more information)
Academic Common Market students are treated as out-of-state students
and receive the costs of out-of-state tuition for a full-time student. Fine & Performing Arts Scholars are not usually encouraged to choose Academic Common Market status as it limits them to a specific major.
