The Blakemore Endowment Fund has two funds which offer college tuition support. The Dorothy Knowles Scholarship is open to all fields of study while the Guy and Margaret Smith Scholarship is open to students pursuing a service based career (i.e., counseling, teaching, social work, nursing, medicine, ministry).
Applicants are not limited to Blakemore members but the candidates must be active in the United Methodist Church. The award amounts vary but generally are near $1,000.
Applications are available below and in the church office. Completed applications must be returned to the church office (3601 West End Avenue, Nashville TN 37205) on or before May 1.
