Applicants for the $2,000 Scholarship must be actively involved with BUMC through membership, attendance while at college, or other similar commitment. Applicants may be incoming freshmen or current students of any post-secondary institution. 


The Steve and Betty Bell Scholarship was created in the couple’s honor by their children and was initially announced in November 2000, at the couple’s 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration.  The Scholarship was established as a tribute to the couple’s loving guidance and support, and their commitment to higher education.  The Bells lived in Blacksburg for over 40 years, and during that time were active members of BUMC.   


The Scholarship Fund is supported entirely by contributions; your donations are encouraged and appreciated.  Please specify on the memo line of the check that the contribution is for the Bell Scholarship Fund, and mail to:  Blacksburg United Methodist Church, Attn:  Office Administrator, P.O. Box 931, Blacksburg, VA 24063. You can also donate via our website.
