Community Foundation

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has announced that its annual scholarship application process is now open.

The foundation is a charitable organization connecting generosity with need in 40 Middle Tennessee and three Kentucky counties.

Students are invited to apply.

The foundation administers more than 125 scholarship funds, established by individuals, companies and civic groups.

Students may be eligible for multiple scholarships and need to only submit one application.

Whether a student is studying law or horticulture, planning a career in criminal justice or teaching, or studying at a technical school or four-year university, The Community Foundation’s scholarship program supports individuals from various backgrounds and communities seeking funding for educational opportunities.

“Getting an education is one of the most important milestones in life, but for many, it comes with a great burden,” said Ellen Lehman, president of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. “We feel honored to help students receive a quality education, made possible by donors who wish to make a difference. It is a privilege to connect generosity with need in this way.”

Scholarships offered in Franklin County include the Franklin County Arts Guild Scholarship and the Thomas Isbell Scholarship.
