PCA has several different scholarship funds available. Each scholarship is equally important and has the potential to significantly impact a PCA student. Scholarship applications are accepted in the spring for the upcoming school year and are reviewed and awarded by the Tuition Assistance Committee. All scholarship applicants must also complete a tuition assistance application through FACTS.
Dr. John Silas Bass Memorial Health Professional Scholarship Fund
The Dr. John Silas Bass Memorial Health Professional Scholarship has been established in honor of Dr. John Silas Bass. Dr. Bass is the first known African-American physician to practice in Murfreesboro. He was an escaped slave who eventually completed medical training at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN. He practiced medicine in Murfreesboro in the late 1800’s until moving to Iola, KS in 1902 where he lived until he passed away in 1923. This scholarship is reserved for minority students entering 1st-12th grade and is based upon financial need. An interest of pursuing a career in a health related field is preferred. Students must reapply each spring to be considered for an award for the following school year.
Baylor Bramble Scholarship Fund
The Baylor Bramble Scholarship Fund has been established in memory of Baylor Bramble. The scholarship is open to students in any grade. Preference is given to students who are new to PCA when possible. The Baylor Bramble Scholarship Fund provides assistance with a portion of tuition for students whose families qualify for financial assistance through FACTS. Students must reapply each spring for the following school year.
Carlton Faculty Scholarship Fund
The Carlton Faculty Scholarship Fund is named after Ms. Lisa Carlton, a pioneer administrator at PCA and developer of our original Faculty Scholarship Fund. The Carlton Scholarship Fund is vital to our financial aid program. The monies collected for this fund help offset the cost of tuition assistance. It is these gifts that allow us to offer tuition assistance to deserving families. This is the fund in which many members of PCA faculty and staff donate generously to help students attend our school.
Hallee Cartwright Scholarship Fund
The Hallee Cartwright Scholarship Fund is awarded each year to one student of any grade level. This fund was created to honor Hallee Cartwright, a seventh grade student who suddenly passed away after a brief illness. Through this scholarship, her legacy and the impact she made on our students will live on forever. Students must reapply each spring for the following school year.
Hannah McKnight Scholarship Fund
The Hannah McKnight scholarship was announced in May, 2010 during PCA’s first high school graduation ceremony. The scholarship has been created in honor of Hannah McKnight who was the first student to complete consecutive grades from kindergarten through her senior year at Providence Christian Academy. This scholarship specifically provides for returning high school students with a financial need. Students must reapply each spring for the following school year.
Lori A. Thomas Scholarship Fund
The Lori A. Thomas Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Lori Thomas for her thirteen years of faithful and dedicated service to Providence Christian Academy.
