Lane College, a private, Christian Historically Black College in Jackson, TN is introducing the Power of Potential ® Presidential Scholars Program to Hamilton County-Chattanooga students. Lane College’s president, Dr. Logan Hampton, is excited to find more scholars like Lane College’s SGA President, Kadarius Scott, who’s a current junior at the institution and graduate of Brainerd High School.


The Power of Potential ® Scholarship  is offered to any Hamilton County high school senior who has a GPA of 3.0 or higher, who is excited about attending a Historically Black College/University, who demonstrates perseverance and leadership, submits a letter of recommendation from a teacher/counselor/principal/community or business leader, and completes the Lane College application for admission and the Power of Potential ® Scholarship  application by January 15, 2019. 

This award is given to students from low-income backgrounds with a family income of up to $40,000, which equates to approximately 200% of the federal poverty level. Family Income combines parent and student Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) plus untaxed income, such as alimony, child support, social security income, and other forms of untaxed income reported on the FAFSA.
To be eligible for the Power of Potential ® Scholarship, students must submit all admission and scholarship application materials by January 15, 2019.



 The scholarship, when combined with other federal, state, and university scholarships, will cover a student’s tuition, fees, and on-campus housing and meal plan. This scholarship is a four-year award.
