2015-2016 academic year. You will log into your myMemphis portal to apply, and directions

High School Students
The University of Memphis selectively awards academic scholarships each year. All
scholarships are awarded for the academic year (fall and spring semesters only). Scholarships
are awarded based on information submitted on the U of M admissions application. For
priority consideration, freshmen students should be admitted to the University of
Memphis by December 1.
University of Memphis scholarship awards are based on a comprehensive review of ACT
Composite or SAT (CR+M) scores and the cumulative high school grade point average.
Most scholarships are four-year, renewable scholarships requiring full-time enrollment.
Early application to the University of Memphis is strongly encouraged as scholarship
awards are limited.
Students eligible for the State of Tennessee HOPE Scholarship Program (Lottery Scholarship)
must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as specified by the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC). For more
details regarding the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship Program, please go to the HOPE Lottery Scholarship website.
Admitted high school seniors intending to enroll for Fall 2015 may also apply for
private and departmental scholarships through the Tiger Scholarship Manager. The application
process will reopen during Fall 2014. You will log into your myMemphis portal to apply,
and directions are provided HERE.
