Joseph V. Barr Memorial Scholarship
The Joseph V. Barr Memorial Scholarship was named in memory of a TBC alumnus (class of 1984). Joseph V. Barr spent his life preaching the gospel of Christ in the low country of South Carolina. He was instrumental in starting the Central Carolina School of Preaching at Sumter, SC. It was Brother Barr’s desire that Tennessee Bible College be more intricately connected to the work of the Church in the low country and with the school of preaching he helped to found. This scholarship has an emphasis on worthy candidates coming from South Carolina and the Central Carolina School of Preaching.
Moral Excellence Scholarship
The Moral Excellence Scholarship is based on those Christian qualities mentioned in II Peter 1:5-10. It is awarded to those that have demonstrated these merits (faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness) and need financial support. The worthy student must be recommended by either a teacher from a given institution, preacher, elder, deacon, or Christian. A “C” or higher average must have been maintained throughout high school as well as a good work ethic. A “C” or higher average must be kept at TBC as well as commitment to work. If the moral excellence requirement is met, anyone can receive this scholarship without regard to race, sex, socio-economic condition, creed, or religious affiliation.
The Moral Excellence Scholarship pays for all tuition for four years of study, but the student must furnish books and boarding. The worthy student will be expected to continue in moral excellence at Tennessee Bible College.
Dailey and Vincent “Singing from the Heart” Scholarship
The Dailey and Vincent “Singing from the Heart” Scholarship has been formed from the generous gift of Bluegrass and Grand Ole Opry stars Jamie Dailey and Darren Vincent. Dailey and Vincent’s special project and first album, “Singing from the Heart”, funds this Scholarship. It is available to any worthy student with a desire to receive Christian education as a gospel preacher, Bible teacher, or Christian worker in the Kingdom of Christ.
Witty Scholarship Fund
The Witty Scholarship Fund is a memorial fund given to Tennessee Bible College by the late James L. “Bud” and Pauline Witty estate. The Witty’s were long time supporters of TBC and the training of Gospel preachers. This fund is for those training to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Tenpenny Scholarship is a supplemental scholarship available to any worthy student and can be used for books and materials.
