Each year, the student ministry of Brentwood Baptist has the honor of presenting college scholarships to members of our church who are attending Belmont University. These scholarships are given in honor of our founding pastor, Bill Wilson.

Applications for the 2021-2022 school year are now OPEN. 

2021 Application

If you have questions or need further information on this process, please contact Sarah Fehl in the student ministry office at 615.324.6126 or [email protected].


Students need to apply once for each academic year and must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a member of Brentwood Baptist Church or one of its campuses.  If you have questions about your membership status, please contact our office at 615-324-6126.
  • Must be enrolled as a full-time student, undergraduate (12 hours minimum) at Belmont University for the coming academic year.
  • Must complete the scholarship application in full and return to the student ministry office no later than the end of the day on February 14, 2021.
  • Must have two (2) letters of recommendation received in the student ministry office no later than the end of the day on February 14, 2021.

Also, please note that children of faculty or staff of Belmont, University College students, and graduate students are not eligible for this scholarship. All endowed scholarships are for full-time, undergraduate, “traditional” students.

Applications will open on our website – January 4, 2021.


Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of all eligibility criteria. The total amount awarded varies according to the amount of interest accrued in the fund and, therefore, changes from year to year. All eligible applications will receive at least some amount.

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. The Student Ministry Office will notify scholarship recipients at the e-mail address provided on or before March 15, 2021.

Note that the scholarships awarded are annual and Belmont usually applies half of the amount to each semester of an academic year.
