Here at Blakemore United Methodist Church, we are pleased to be able to offer two need-based scholarships to individuals pursuing studies at colleges and universities. To be eligible for these scholarships, applicants may be of any age, and must have been active in a Nashville-area United Methodist Church for at least one year prior to applying.

The Dorothy Knowles College scholarship is open to anyone who is a member of a Nashville-area UMC church attending an accredited college or university.

The Guy and Margaret Smith College Scholarship is available to those who are enrolled in an area of study for a career in a service-related field such as teaching, social work, health care, ministry, or counseling.

Application deadline is May 30, 2023.

A panel of 5 members of the church will review the applications, and applicants will be notified of the results by the middle of June.
