The fall semester brings a new group of President's Ambassadors to Volunteer State Community College. The Ambassadors represent the college at events, conduct campus tours and help with public relations. Students selected for the President's Ambassadors scholarship program go through a rigorous vetting and interview process. Successful candidates are selected from over one thousand eligible students. To be eligible for the program, students must have a cumulative 3.0 grade point average and have completed at least 12 college-level credit hours at Vol State. The scholarship covers full tuition and fees at the in-state rate, as well as a $300 per semester book stipend. Students selected serve a one-year term.
