Johnella H. Martin Fund is named for a distinguished former president of MNEA who was dedicated to teachers, students and the newly created Metropolitan Nashville Public School System.

Martin Fund is a renewable scholarship that students can receive each year of a four-year undergraduate program of studies or for up to five years if enrolled in a formal five-year higher education program in education.
