All students are encouraged to apply for Foundation scholarships, regardless of financial situation, program of study, or GPA. The Foundation Scholarships are provided by the Chattanooga State Foundation and private donors. The Foundation, a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, was chartered in 1977 by citizens interested in the educational well-being of Chattanooga State’s students. Requirements and award amounts vary.
Scholarships may be renewed depending upon scholarship criteria. Failure to meet individual qualifications of awarded scholarships during any semester will result in forfeiture of the scholarship for the following semester. Recipients must enroll for a minimum of twelve (12) credit hours each semester unless program is approved for less hours or specific scholarship criteria states otherwise.
