Scholarships offered through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee have been made possible by the generosity of donors who help students, such as you, plan post-secondary education.  Scholarship Funds within The Community Foundation can be set up to benefit students from particular geographic areas or schools, attending certain post-secondary institutions, or entering certain fields of study. Students apply to the program and, if eligible, can be awarded grants from one or more of these different funds.
