The program is open to underrepresented students, first-generation college students, and students on free or reduced lunch. Students must be entering the 12th grade with a GPA of 3.0 or better.

Students participate in the preparation and presentation of a team project and interact with diverse professionals from business and government. There is no cost to attend, but a $20 seat reservation fee is due upon selection for the program.

Students selected to participate in the BETS receive room and board, meals, books, and supplies. They are required to live in the residence hall at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus.
