TTF Scholarship

Attention Tennessee Residents: Don't miss the opportunity to apply for a Tennessee Trucking Foundation scholarship.

The TTF has a NEW WEBSITE THIS YEAR: The CFMT scholarship application process this year is different from past years. The application that is on the CFMT website is "LIVE" and can be accessed here. Tennessee Trucking Foundation (TTF) Scholarships are available for dependent children, spouses or employees of companies who are members in good standing of the Tennessee Trucking Association. Scholarship recipients must be Tennessee residents who are entering their junior or senior years at accredited colleges or universities located in Tennessee.

The student should go to the website above to access the application then create a New Student account (even if they are applying for renewal). The applicant should complete the application which can be saved and finished later, and submit the application when all attachments are in their application. Students who have received the Tennessee Trucking Association scholarship previously will use the application for Past Recipients. The student will complete one application. Students will be notified along the way as they work on their application and when it is submitted by email. The deadline for submission is still March 15. The TTF hopes that the process will be easier and less cumbersome for students.

The scholarship program is administered by the Board of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and applications will be reviewed by a selection committee appointed by them. In evaluating applicants, the committee will consider academic aptitude, test scores, extracurricular activities and financial need. The deadline to submit applications to the Community Foundation for 2012-13 academic year scholarships is March 15, 2012.

Applications and materials can be downloaded here (Choose the "General Scholarship Application.") For more information on the process of applying for the TTA Scholarship through the Community Foundation, visit their Web site.

Make sure and apply by March 15, 2012!!!
