High school seniors and current college students who live in Williamson County are encouraged to apply for the scholarship to be awarded by Leadership Franklin. The non-profit organization awards one $1,500 scholarship to a student who meets the scholarship criteria.

Applicants must have a minimum 3.25 cumulative grade point average to be considered. A copy of the student’s transcript, a 500-word essay and letter of recommendation are part of the application requirement.

Scholarships are awarded based on a scoring process of scholarship application points: a combination of grade point average, school extra-curricular activities including sports and community outreach, and strength of writing/quality of essay. All students are encouraged to apply. Applications have closed for 2019.
