The Greater Nashville Auburn Club awards one $1,000, four-year scholarship every year. This need-based, renewable scholarship means that any student from Nashville, regardless of year, is eligible to receive $1,000 each year for up to four years. Our scholarship endowment continues to grow thanks to the generosity of our members. Every time you attend an event, participate in a silent auction, or donate to our endowment, you help add one more Nashvillian to the Auburn family.
Incoming Auburn students from Nashville-are counties are eligible; all you have to do is apply through AUSOM once you have been accepted to Auburn. These scholarships are awarded by Auburn University on a variety of criteria and make a great impact on incoming students. No one from GNAC is involved with making these decisions.

At Auburn University, I hope to make great grades, make lifelong friends, get involved and put myself out of my
comfort zone. I would love to try new activities and find organizations to volunteer with. I plan to follow the pre-med track to go to medical school and become a doctor.
