Scholarships

The Drive Behind the Gala


Will You Invest?

Without access to scholarship support, a significant number of TSU students will have to delay or deny their desire to earn the undergraduate degree that will be their only pathway to a meaningful career or attaining a graduate or professional school degree. 

Consider investing in a student and their future by establishing a scholarship.  You can set up an endowed or annual scholarship in the name(s) of your choice.
