Making a Difference for 25 Years: Scholarships at CFMT

Trehon Coleman

Going to college costs money, and lots of it.

For the past quarter-century, thousands of students have had their educational dreams become reality, though, thanks to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s scholarship program.

CFMT has awarded $27.7 million in scholarships to 10,450 students since 1995.
