CFMT Awards Scholarships Totaling $830K to 323 Students for 2022-23 School Year


The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee announces its scholarship program is helping to support 323 individual students pursuing secondary education at accredited schools throughout the United States.

In 2022-23, a total of $830,373 has been awarded from 97 different scholarship funds.

The students are attending 162 unique colleges and universities from 33 states.

“Making the decision to further one’s education is one of the most empowering decisions an individual can make, but the financial costs associated with education make it unattainable for many,” said Kelly Pietkiewicz, CFMT Scholarship Coordinator. “At The Community Foundation, our generous scholarship donors empower hundreds of recipients with their unique funds reaching a variety of students across Middle Tennessee and the nation.”
