The CFP scholarship program helps provide high school and non-traditional students residing in Warren County an opportunity to attend Motlow State Community College or Tennessee College of Applied Technology.By design, the scholarship will not only provide employers in Warren County with a well-trained workforce, but also provide incentive for young people to remain in the county.The program carries with it certain eligibility provisions for each category of student, but the essence is the scholarship is provided for Warren County residents who are either Warren County High School students, or who are county residents working at a Warren County manufacturer.
