High School Seniors Encouraged to Apply for Bethel’s Hendrix Scholarship

Posted

MCKENZIE – This spring, one deserving high school senior will win full tuition, room and board at Bethel University, thanks to the Hendrix Scholarship.

Established in 1988, the Hendrix Scholarship Competition was the brainchild of late Nashville businessman Willard R. Hendrix, who dreamed of connecting qualified and dedicated faculty with outstanding and deserving students. As the grandson of former Bethel University President W.W. Hendrix, the younger Hendrix also wanted to pay tribute to his grandfather, an outstanding educator who reopened the school on a new McKenzie campus after the Civil War. Willard Hendrix established the trust just two months before his death in August 1988.  Worthy students have competed for – and benefitted from - the prestigious award ever since.

The competition is a two-day event in which students’ academic abilities will be tested with a written exam, an academic exam, and an interview. Lodging and meals for competitors will be provided on the Bethel campus. Additional activities include a meet-and-greet with current Honors students, interaction with faculty, a campus tour, activities and a banquet celebrating the participants and winners. The winner of the competition will earn full tuition, room and board; the runner-up will earn full tuition. All others who compete will be considered for other Bethel academic scholarships.

In order to be considered for the Hendrix Competition, high school seniors must have a minimum 3.25 GPA and a 23/1130 or above ACT/SAT score. The winner and runner-up must maintain a 3.6 GPA to renew the scholarship each year.

The 2019 Hendrix Competition is March 15-16, 2019. Application deadline is March 8.
