CNM is committed to providing accessible opportunities for nonprofits across Middle Tennessee. Explore our scholarships for continuing education and networking opportunities below.

MatchGrant Scholarships



MatchGrant scholarships provide financial assistance for CNM members to help reduce the costs of workshops. MatchGrant scholarships are structured to cover up to 75% of a workshop cost at a time for organizations with a budget under $2 million.

At the beginning of each calendar year (January 1), MatchGrant funds become available to assist CNM members with the cost of workshops.

Funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. As always, we encourage participants to register for classes and use MatchGrant funds early in the year. Our classes fill up, and our MatchGrant funds are typically gone before the end of the year.
