The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has announced it is awarding scholarships worth $742,000 to 328 students, including 19 from Rutherford County.

The Community Foundation scholarships, established by individuals, companies and civic groups, will assist students with tuition and other school-related expenses. The scholarship committee considers applicants’ academic records, test scores, extracurricular activities, work experience, community involvement and personal recommendations.

“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.”
