Young-Beaudrot Music Scholarship
The Young-Beaudrot Music Scholarship was established to aid scholars in their musical education and to encourage them to use their talents to enhance church worship to the glory of God.
The scholarship is funded by a Trust Fund established to the honor and memory of Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Pope Young and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Louis Beaudrot. The Youngs and Beaudrots became a part of Greenwood First Baptist in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, and the church was a vital part of their lives. They and their descendants wish to assist others in their music education.
Scholarship recipients will be asked to share their talents with Greenwood First Baptist Church. While students of First Baptist Church and music ministry students have priority, the scholarship committee is guided by the Spirit in their selection of the scholarship recipients. A formal interview is part of the application process. Applications must be received by August 1 of each calendar year. Applications may be emailed to the Minister of Music, David Corbitt or mailed to David's attention. Please note on the envelope the Young-Beaudrot Music Scholarship.

Tony Stokes Award
The Stokes Award was established in 1990 by the family of Tony Stokes with gifts in his memory. The award is designated for youth of Greenwood First Baptist Church. The award seeks to recognize a young person with qualities which Tony felt were important: church participation, strong moral character, fun, sense of purpose, and most of all, Christian faith.
Youth of Greenwood First Baptist are asked to complete the application, giving special attention to questions 4, 8, and 9. Applications need to be returned to the church no later than the first Sunday of May.
A committee will review the information and anonymously select a recipient. In addition to a one time scholarship of $500.00, the name of the recipient will be placed on a permanent plaque in the Youth Lounge. This award will be presented during the morning worship service on Senior Recognition Sunday.
