• Partners in Progress General Requirements:

    • Graduate from a Sevier County high school
    • Complete Associates program at WSCC or complete 60 credit hours to be considered a junior at ETSU
    • Attend ETSU at Sevierville
    • PIP scholarships will only be awarded in the semester following completion of course work at WSCC either through graduation or completion of required hours to be recognized as a junior at ETSU. (i.e. completion at WSCC in Fall = enrollment at ETSU for Spring semester; completion at WSCC in Spring, = enrollment at ETSU for Fall semester)
    • Must maintain TN Lottery Scholarship eligibility
    • Make satisfactory academic progress
    • Must apply for all federal financial aid and institutional scholarships available.
    • Additional requirements are listed at

    I understand that the PIP scholarship program is only applicable if the above criteria are met. I authorize a representative of ETSU to verify GPA requirements and TN Lottery Scholarship eligibility each semester.

  • *A final transcript is to be submitted to the Coordinator at ETSU Sevierville upon graduation or completion of 60 hours from WSCC before scholarship can be awarded. The PIP scholarship is awarded and maintained by the Sevier County Economic Development Council, not East Tennessee State University

    Returning students in good standing with ETSU will receive first priority on scholarship dollars.
