It Pays to Prep is a publication we update yearly that is designed to help families find merit-based scholarships that their student(s) are eligible for in Tennessee. We have included a link to download the pdf, and we have included the document in its entirety on this web page. (We also create a version of It Pays to Prep for out-of-state scholarships in America. You can find it here.)
Our hope is that It Pays to Prep will encourage students to consider schools that they may not currently be considering, as well as motivate students to raise their ACT scores. It Pays to Prep is designed to be user friendly. However, there are some symbols and terms that may be unfamiliar. We have included an explanation for all of the terms and symbols on page four of the document.
To utilize It Pays to Prep! in its simplest form, look down the left-hand column to find the ACT score and GPA necessary to obtain certain scholarships. The columns to the right will indicate the amount the student will receive per year and over four years if he or she receives that scholarship. Most of these scholarships are guaranteed scholarships. So, if the student meets the requirements, they will receive that scholarship as long as they get everything turned in on time to that school.
