Our donors come from every corner of the community.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, dedicated to investing in students' futures, we administer more than 85 scholarship funds through an open application process. Some scholarships help students from a particular school or area; others provide financial assistance to those pursuing a specific field of study; still others assist students most in need. Students need only complete one application to be considered for any CFMT scholarship for which they are eligible. The deadline to apply is March 15.

The training will be held on Tuesday, February 3 at Maxwell House Hotel.
The Brooks Fund History Project is a diverse multimedia record of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) life in Middle Tennessee, which will be archived in Nashville Public Library’s Special Collections Division: Oral History Collections. This collection will be accessible to the public and provides a record of an earlier generation that struggled for acceptance with themselves, their family and community. Since spring 2009, multiple interviews have been conducted chronicling the lives of gay, transgender and bisexual residents, reflecting on life in Middle Tennessee before 1970, and how homosexuality was viewed in the larger community.
