The Tucker Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the ECW of the Episcopal Church in East Tennessee according to the ECW 2004 yearbook, “in thanksgiving for Mollie Tucker’s life and witness and for her many years of service to the Episcopal Church Women in Tennessee.” The financial award is intended to help recipients reach educational goals at accredited colleges or technical schools. Since 1988, more than 25 women in the diocese have been awarded a Mollie Hazen Tucker Scholarship. It is a one-time grant, currently $2,000, for one year only.
The Scholarship is to honor Mollie Hazen Tucker for her faithful service to the Episcopal Church Women for many years: the example she presented to all who know her, her strong leadership in Education, Worship, Mission, and in the Church at Large. The Episcopal Church Women of East Tennessee give Thanks to God for her life and witness.
The recipient of this scholarship shall be selected by a committee appointed by the president of the Episcopal Church Women of East Tennessee.
This is a one-time grant for one year only, to be awarded each year to a female student.
The deadline to apply for grants is typically May 1 of each year (there is an extension in 2023), (applications must be postmarked no later than the deadline). Winners are announced around June 1, Tucker’s birthday.
