First Baptist encourages our students in higher education and wants to provide prayer and financial help where we can. Below are links to download forms for two different scholarships offered by FBC.
The Tommy Douglass Parrott Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1995 in memory of Tommy Parrott by his parents, Rush and Louise Parrott. Any high school senior entering college to study in any music field may apply. This is a 1-year scholarship and is awarded to one student in Sevier County each year. The Tommy Douglass Parrott Memorial Scholarship Fund is not currently being offered but will be reinstated as market conditions improve.
First Baptist also offers the College / Seminary Scholarship. This scholarship is open to any high school senior, college student, or seminary student accepted into or currently attending an SACS accredited college affiliated with a Baptist State Convention in cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention, or any seminary supported by the Southern Baptist Convention. Applicants must be an active member of FBC Sevierville for a minimum of 2 years prior to application submission. Allocation of this scholarship to qualified participants will be based on the appropriation for scholarships in the annual budget, not to exceed $2,000 per recipient. See application for additional qualifications.
Submission of either application gives the Board full permission to check out references and confirm information on the application. If you have questions regarding either applicaton, call the church office at (865) 453-9001.
