Each season, the Nashville Sounds Foundation awards scholarships to four deserving Middle Tennessee graduating high school seniors who plan to attend college in the fall. Each recipient is awarded a $2,500 scholarship to be used for their college tuition. To date, the Nashville Sounds Foundation has awarded $30,000 in scholarships, and is happy to continue helping local scholars continue their education.

 The mission of the Nashville Sounds Foundation is to utilize baseball to positively impact communities throughout Middle Tennessee by emphasizing the importance of social responsibility, education, and the power of sport to transform lives.
