Marshall Scholars Program

 

Are you a citizen of Marshall County, Tennessee wondering how you will pay for education after high school? To help with this problem, the Marshall Education Foundation and concerned members of the community created the Marshall Scholars Program.  In November of 2005, the Marshall Education Foundation launch the Marshall Scholars Program in an effort to encourage students to responsibly finance their post-secondary education.  The Marshall scholars program has been created with the goal of increasing the number of high school students in Marshall County who continue their education at post-secondary institutions such as technical schools, community college, and universities through scholarships and financial aid support services.  These services are targeted to juniors and seniors, with career guidance intended for younger students.

The process is tailored to the individual needs of each student.  This one-on-one interaction allows students to be paired with the best scholarship and other financial aid options for them.  This increases the likelihood of receiving funds that can make the difference between attending or not attending a post-secondary educational institution.  In order to facilitate this interaction, the scholarship coordinator will be at each of the three county high schools once a week to help pair the student with the appropriate financial aid.
