Tennessee Association of Special Programs (TASP) is pleased to announce its’ 2013 Scholarship Competition.

The TASP Pre-College Scholarship and Adult Learner Scholarship Applications are now available.


There is a form for the Pre-College Application as well as the Adult Learner Application here, so be sure to click on the appropriate link.  Remember the following:


1.   Attention: Only one application may be submitted per TRiO program.  Program, as used in this context, means an individual project.  Institutions which have more than one project (e.g. Talent Search and Upward Bound) may submit an application for each project. 


2.   Applicants must be sponsored/recommended by a TRIO/TASP staff member of the project in which the applicant participates.  NOTE: The TRIO/TASP staff member must be a member of TASP as well as their institution.  The TRIO/TASP staff member can email Charles White at cwhite@bgctnv.org or Dr. Ronnie Gross at grossrd@mail.etsu.edu to ensure his/her institution and individual membership are current and/or refer to the list of TASP’s individual and institutional members attached to the scholarship application.  If membership is not current, the application will be disqualified.  No exceptions will be given.
