Dora Maclellan Brown Ministry Scholarship Program

The DMB Ministry Scholarships are available to Christian men and women who are:

  • From the greater Chattanooga area
  • Theologically and biblically conservative
  • Seeking a master's degree at a theological seminary or graduate school

The Scholarship Committee's preference is for candidates for the pulpit ministry, although applications for other ministry training will be considered. Applications for scholarships for doctoral programs are not considered.

Applicants should call our office and ask for Jennifer at (423) 266-5257 or email to confirm eligibility.

The 2019 Dora Maclellan Brown Scholarship application is a two-page application.  Both pages are required for submission, along with the other documents noted on the bottom of Page 2 of the application.  Please see the links below.

  • Personal Information & References - Page 1
  • Financial Information, Checklist & Confirmation - Page 2

As you will read in the guidelines, the application includes a one-page testimony of faith and a one-page evidence of your call to ministry.  The testimony of faith is your salvation story or how Christ called you to Himself.  The evidence of call to ministry is how God invited you to use your gifts in vocational ministry.

If you have trouble downloading the application or wish to have only a fillable pdf file, please email Jennifer.
