General Schloarship Fund


The General Scholarship Fund is the scholarship with the most flexible criteria to meet the needs of our Pellissippi State students. It may be awarded as a standalone scholarship or in some cases, it may be awarded in conjunction with other scholarship awards to help address an emergency need.
Pellissippi State Foundation’s 2021 Giving Tuesday theme is “Helping Hands for Students”. The funds in this year’s Giving Tuesday focus on holistic student support. The funds include the General Scholarship, the Student Opportunity Fund, the Homeless Student Scholarship and the Pellissippi Pantry.
One of this year’s matching partners is the First Horizon Foundation who will match Giving Tuesday gifts to the General Scholarship Fund up to $5,000. All gifts given to the General Scholarship Fund between now and November 30 are eligible to be included in the match.


Since 2008, the General Scholarship Fund has provided 380 scholarships totaling $196,608.
