The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis offers a number of scholarships for local students. At the Central Library, we have just received this year’s booklet, which contains guidelines, applications and more. You may pick one up in the Job & Career Center on the 3rd floor, as long as supplies last. You can also check out the Community Foundation’s website for more information. Most applications are due by April 1, 2008. Good luck!
