To apply:
• provide the basic information below,
• check the boxes for any scholarships for which you are eligible and wish to apply
• compose a carefully written letter of roughly 500 words discussing your interest in pursuing studies in English at UTC and describing the extent of your financial need. Preference will be given to those whose letters reflect their intellectual curiosity and passions, and not merely their professional goals. In the first part of your letter you should discuss what drew you to the English major in the first place, and which courses, texts, genres, periods and intellectual problems particularly appeal to you and inspire you to do your best work, and why. In the second part of your letter, please describe your financial need; be sure to emphasize the sort of contributing factors that might not be apparent to the Department of English Scholarships Committee from your financial aid records, and be as specific as possible in describing how a scholarship award would encourage or advance your scholarly development.
Email your letter to Dr. Immaculate Kizza (immaculate-kizza@utc.edu). Your letter must be in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format.
