The Community Foundation Scholarships

Thank you for your interest in The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee scholarship program. The 2016 Scholarship Application process is now closed.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors dedicated to investing in students' futures, we administer more than 100 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.
