Graduate Scholarships

Janice I. Nicholson Elementary Education Scholarship

Dr. Janice I. Nicholson established the Janice I. Nicholson Elementary Education Scholarship which will be given annually to assist deserving female students who enroll in the education graduate program at Blue Mountain College.

John L. and Helen Claire Barlow Scholarship

As a tribute to their continuing interest in educational endeavors, a scholarship was established in honor of Claire Barlow, a BMC Alumna, and her husband John, both ardent supporters of Blue Mountain College. 

The scholarship is awarded to deserving students on the basis of good scholarship, Christian character, and need with preference given first to students from Monroe County (Mississippi) majoring in elementary education and then to deserving students enrolled in an elementary education program, either at the undergraduate or graduate level.  

Students from any state or foreign country may be considered for scholarships. Information regarding the criteria for selection, the selection process, and the scholarship application may be obtained by clicking on the links below:
