The Creative Arts Scholarship in Digital Media allows out-of-state students to pay in-state tuition. ETSU and Digital Media are committed to providing excellent training and experiences for students in the digital arts. This scholarship provides out-of-state students with the complete cost of out-of-state portion of tuition, so recipients pay the same rate as Tennessee residents. Students who are participating in another program which covers out-of-state tuition, such as the Academic Common Market, border waiver, or Honors-in-Discipline, are not eligible. Students must be new to ETSU to qualify for the scholarship; already enrolled students are not qualified. This scholarship has a value of approximately $9,000 per semester.
