How does this combine with other scholarships?

Provost Scholars may qualify for other UT Scholarships, such as the UT Volunteer, and some in-state scholars might be eligible to receive Orange & White, Flagship, Pledge, Promise, Provost, or TN Connect. When two or more scholarships are combined, your award amounts may be adjusted if your combination exceeds UT’s allowable award maximums.
