Tennessee Baptist Foundation Scholarship

The Tennessee Baptist Foundation Scholarship is an annual scholarship (for FALL and SPRING semesters of the school year). You must apply every year to be considered for scholarship assistance.

  • Applicant must be enrolled as a full-time student in an accredited college or university for undergraduate study, or an accredited medical, dental or pharmacy program. “Full-time” is defined by the educational institution.
