Lucien and Carolyn Hughes Battle Memorial Scholarship 

Lucien and Carolyn Battle have created a scholarship fund for the purpose of offering financial aid to members of Nolensville First United Methodist Church who have graduated from high school (or currently in their Senior year) and are entering their first year at a college/university in 2018.

To be considered for this scholarship the student must:

  1. Have been a member of Nolensville First United Methodist Church for at least 1 year; 
  2. Have a cumulative high school grade point average not less than 2.5;
  3. Graduate from high school this year (or have already graduated); and
  4. Be accepted into an accredited 4-year college/university.

There is a subjective component to the selection process.  It is not necessary for the selected student to have the highest GPA of candidates applying.  The Board of Trustees will review all applications and select the student who, in their collective opinion, exhibits not only educational preparedness but also has shown leadership initiative through community, church, and other organizational involvement such as 4-H, scouting, band, sports or other extracurricular activities. 

This scholarship is intended for an incoming freshman.  However, in the event there is no qualified freshman student, the Board of Trustees have the authority to select a higher-level student to receive the award.  The same selection guidelines described above will apply.


$1,500 (only one awarded per year)
Will be remitted directly to the college/university student will attend (to be used for tuition and books).  


  1. Complete scholarship application located here
  2. Include official high school transcript (in a sealed envelope); and
