The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization connecting generosity with need in 40 Middle Tennessee counties, recently announced its annual scholarship application process and invited students to apply by March 15 at www.cfmt.org.
The foundation administers more than 100 scholarship funds, established by individuals, companies and civic groups. Students need only complete one application to be eligible for all scholarship funds, where criteria are met.
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."
In 2016, The Community Foundation awarded 291 scholarships totaling more than $548,200 in funding to students pursuing secondary educational goals.
