They gave, so that you could learn.
Charitable Mid-Southerners who work with the Community Foundation have chosen to help you continue your education. They believe that much in the importance and the future of the next generation!
The Community Foundation manages more than 40 different scholarships, each one created to honor a different person, profession, school, or goal. Applications for 17 of the scholarships are available on our site.
For example, friends and family of the late Memphis Grizzlies' legendary broadcaster Don Poier created a scholarship in his memory. The Kylen C. Bares scholarship remembers a remarkable Memphis student by helping math, engineering, or science students.
