Haslam Scholars Program

Timothy Hulsey, Associate Provost and Director

The Haslam Scholars Program is the University of Tennessee’s premier enrichment program and assists exceptional students achieve the highest level of inquiry and understanding. The Program seeks a group of students who are academically strong, intellectually curious and who have a desire to change the world. Students should embrace the program’s emphasis on gaining a knowledge base that reflects both depth and breadth, becoming more globally engaged, and serving the communities in which they live and learn. Prospective Haslam Scholars will combine exceptional scholarly and intellectual merit with evidence of leadership, service and potential.

The Haslam Scholars Program curriculum includes three core interdisciplinary courses and a study abroad course taken as a cohort in their first two years of study. Scholars also undertake 6 credit hours of independent, in-depth research in which they complete a substantial scholarly, scientific or artistic endeavor.

The curriculum contributes significantly to General Education requirements in every undergraduate degree program.

While no strict grade point average or test score minimums will be used in the Haslam Scholars Program selection process, Haslam Scholars are likely to have earned a truly superior GPA in a rigorous high school curriculum and scored in the top 1% of the national distribution of standardized test scores (e.g., 33+ ACT composite, 1460+ SAT or 2190+ new SAT).
