DREAM Scholarship

Application Process

Students who are interested in the DREAM Scholarship must submit the documents and forms listed below to be considered. Priority consideration will be given to students who apply for admission, submit test scores and transcripts, and submit a 'Consolidated Application for Scholarships through Financial Aid & Scholarship Office' by February 15.

The following documents must be on file in the Admissions Office by February 15, 2013, for priority consideration

  • Admission application and any required application fees
  • Official ACT and/or SAT test scores*
  • Official sixth-semester high school transcript

Applicants must complete and submit a 'Consolidated Application for Scholarships through Financial Aid & Scholarship Office', available online at http://mtsu.scholarships.ngwebsolutions.com (see detailed instructions below). The scholarship staff will determine whether an applicant meets diversity requirements, based on the applicant's answers to diversity questions on the scholarship application. The application must be submitted by February 15.

Applicants must submit a FAFSA by March 1 and have valid FAFSA results on file in the MTSU Financial Aid Office by March 15. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

*Please note the following:
GPA and test scores on file with the Admissions Office at the time of the scholarship review will be used for awarding purposes. Typically, the 6th-semester GPA and ACT/SAT scores (without writing sub-scores) through the December test date will be used for scholarship considerations. Only graduates of eligible Tennessee schools can qualify with a GPA.
