November 5, 2020

Attention Seniors!

I am proud to announce that NEHS recently received a special designation from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville, granting specific scholarship opportunities for you to access one of Tennessee’s premier public universities.

The Flagship Scholarship program, provided by Flagship Universities, reaches out across the 50 states. There are only 38 high schools in Tennessee that qualify for this designation, which according to the University of Tennessee – Knoxville, “when combined with other federal, state, and institutional aid, this scholarship covers a student’s tuition and mandatory fees for up to eight (8) semesters.”

The scholarship is automatically granted to students who meet all of the criteria and complete a college admittance application, with no additional application required. Students must be Tennessee residents and U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Students must also be first-time freshmen who enter UT in the fall semester immediately following graduation.

The scholarship does specify that an admission application must be submitted, so make sure you do not miss these deadlines!


  • Admittance Application submitted by December 15th
  • FAFSA Application sent by February 1st

Students who are interested in learning more about this scholarship program should contact their school counselor or visit for additional information.  Remember your TALONS! GO Eagles!
