Dora Maclellan Brown MINISTRY SCHOLARSHIP
The Dora Maclellan Brown Ministry Scholarships are one of the most unique in the country. Named in honor and memory of our founder, these scholarships have been awarded since 1965 to students from the greater Chattanooga area who are studying for current or future ministry service. We currently have over 400 students who have received scholarships through the years; those students are serving the Lord in 27 states and 14 foreign countries.
Scholarships are available to theologically and Biblically conservative students who are studying at the Master’s level (no doctoral candidates) at a theological seminary or a seminary-like program at graduate school. For the most part, students are enrolled in a Th.M or M.Div program preparing for pastoral ministry work, or in a Master’s program in areas like Biblical counseling, international missions, and other similar outreaches. The student should call Chattanooga home (see guidelines for a more in-depth description of this geographical restriction). While preference is given to students studying full-time and on-site, we do also consider applications from part-time students and those studying by extension.
Grants are made from designated funds set aside each year by the Board of Directors of The Generosity Trust. Grants are paid directly to the school and are applied directly to the student’s account. Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the student’s time in that program – generally a two to three-year period.
Stories of Giving
“Knowing that my education would be paid for, our finances would not be depleted, and our future in His hands” was overwhelming. He and Callie consider the scholarship from The Generosity Trust “the absolute cornerstone” that has made their life in ministry possible.

Timothy Scholarship Program
The Timothy Scholarship Program is designed to assist students from the greater Chattanooga area receive a post-high school education. There are essentially three groups of students who are eligible to apply for and receive this scholarship:
- Children or grandchildren of Chattanooga area pastors or ministry leaders
- Current Dora Maclellan Brown Scholarship recipients
- Students from the Chattanooga area seeking post-secondary education for ministry preparation
The uniqueness of this scholarship program lies in the willingness and ability of an Advocate to raise money on behalf of the student. Once the student is accepted into the program, the Advocate is then empowered to communicate the existence of the scholarship to family and friends of the student. When gifts are received by TGT designated for this student, TGT sends a tax-deductible receipt to the donor. TGT then makes grants directly to the school, instructing the school to apply the grant directly to the student’s account.
The student should call Chattanooga home (see guidelines for a more in-depth description of this geographical restriction). While preference is given to students studying full time and on site, we do also consider applications from part-time students and those studying by extension.
