The Haslam Scholars Program
was founded in 2008 by a generous gift from Jimmy and Dee Haslam and Jim and Natalie Haslam. Since that time, the program has flourished into a unique in-depth academic enrichment program for top students at the University of Tennessee to complete independent research, study abroad, and become community leaders. The program includes access to top UT faculty, an exclusive curriculum, a collaborative study abroad experience, extracurricular experiences, interdisciplinary seminars, and community service learning. Haslam Scholars serve as high-profile undergraduate leaders whose lofty academic ambitions match those of the program and the institution.
