Henderson, Tennessee – (Nov. 29, 2023) – Freed-Hardeman University is collaborating with the Chester County school system to expand educational opportunities for Chester County residents, including homeschooled students who reside in Chester County.

“Henderson and Chester County are unusual in that educational opportunities from kindergarten through the doctoral level are available to residents without their leaving Main Street,” FHU President David R. Shannon said. “At FHU we are proud of that distinction and want to encourage Chester County residents to take advantage of these opportunities.”

Beginning with the fall 2024 incoming class, the university will offer an annual discount of up to $5,000 for Chester County residents who have graduated from Chester County High School or have been homeschooled and intend to pursue full-time undergraduate studies at FHU. This discount can be combined with other scholarships, but excludes additional discounts and athletic scholarships, for a total annual award of up to $15,000. To qualify, students must provide an official final transcript from their homeschooling program or Chester County High School to confirm their graduation.

To qualify for this discount, applicants must be admitted and accept the award by May 15 for first-time freshmen and June 15 for transfer students. Availability of funds determines the number and amounts of individual awards. This discount cannot be combined with athletic scholarships.


The mission of Freed-Hardeman University is to help students develop their God-given talents for His glory by empowering them with an education that integrates Christian faith, scholarship and service. With locations in Henderson and Memphis, FHU offers associates, bachelor’s, master’s, specialist and doctoral degrees.
