The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization working to improve the quality of life in 40 Middle Tennessee and three Kentucky counties, announces it is awarding scholarships to 328 individual students pursuing secondary education at accredited schools throughout the United States.

A total of $742,000 is being awarded to students from 101 different scholarship funds within The Community Foundation.

The students are attending 147 unique colleges and universities from 29 states, with eight international students from Canada.

“The Community Foundation has helped thousands access educational opportunities they might otherwise have been unable to afford by connecting them with the generosity of others,” said Ellen Lehman, president of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. “This year we are honored to help hundreds more improve their futures, and the futures of their families, through the transformation offered by an education.”
