The Magnolia Avenue Student Scholarship


Pellissippi State’s Magnolia Avenue Campus opened in 2000 in the heart of Knoxville. Approximately 600 students are housed each semester at this campus. The Magnolia Avenue Campus is easily accessible by car or by public transportation, or even by foot for residents of downtown and surrounding areas.

The Magnolia Avenue Campus faculty and staff, led by Campus Dean Rosalyn Tillman, are passionate about their students and have created The Magnolia Avenue Student Scholarship. Many of the students at the campus are in need of additional funds to take care of extra expenses associated with their programs. Having this scholarship for students who have proven their interest in completing their degree and are in need of the resources and who deserve a “pat” on the back for their efforts would be a complement to the campus.

In order to be considered for a scholarship provided from The Magnolia Avenue Student Scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:

  1. Must be a student at the Magnolia Avenue Campus of Pellissippi State Community College.
  2. Must be a full-time student taking a minimum of 9 hours.
  3. Must have completed one semester at Pellissippi State.
  4. Demonstrate financial need, but will not be required to comply with state or federal financial aid guidelines.
  5. Must maintain an overall GPA of at least 2.0.

A minimum of 4 -$500 scholarships are awarded in both the Fall and Spring semesters to students meeting the eligibility requirements as long as funds are available.


Please consider giving to this scholarship fund that is making a life-changing difference in the lives of many of the Magnolia Campus students. (For employees wishing to contribute to The Magnolia Avenue Student Scholarship by payroll deduction, please contact Laura Overton at (865) 694-6528.)
