About the Hendrix Scholarship
The Hendrix Scholarship Competition is a premier program established in 1988 by Mr. Willard R. Hendrix of Nashville, Tennessee. Hendrix was a successful Nashville civic leader and businessman who had a great desire to bring qualified and dedicated faculty into contact with outstanding and deserving students. The establishment of the Hendrix Endowment Trust and the Hendrix Scholarship Competition are the fulfillment of one of Mr. Hendrix’s dreams. As the grandson of Bethel University President W.W. Hendrix, the younger Hendrix wanted to pay tribute to his grandfather, who had earned the reputation of outstanding educator. It was President Hendrix who reopened Bethel University on a new McKenzie, Tennessee campus after the Civil War. Willard Hendrix established the trust just two months before his death in August 1988. Since that time, students have been competing for the prestigous award.
About the Competition
The competition, which occurs in February of each year, is a two-day event where students are tested in academic ability. The winner of the competition will earn full tuition, room and board. A runner-up will earn full tuition. All others who compete will be considered for Bethel’s remaining institutional grants.
