- The Phillip K. Thompson and Hazel Wall Scholarship for Spiritual Growth was established as a memorial fund for two special people and first presented in 1983. Phillip K. Thompson was a Tennessee Tech students who gave much of himself to others in the short time he was at Tennessee Tech. Although he was in poor health and facing death, he involved himself in many activities of the BSU. Phillip died in February 1983. His family established this scholarship as a tribute to the friends who ministered to and alongside him during his days at the BSU.
Miss Hazel Wall is recognized as one of the early leaders in the development of the Baptist Student Union work on the Tennessee Tech campus. She served as the very first president of the Tennessee Tech BSU while a student in the 1920's. She also served as a Faculty Advisor to the BSU. As a life-long member of First Baptist Church, Cookeville, she was totally devoted to the advancement of the influence of BSU work on Tennessee Tech's campus. After her death in 1996, a memorial fund was established in her memory. The Alumni Association voted in 1997 to honor her memory along with Phillip K. Thompson's by renaming this scholarship for both of them.
- The Pauline Roberson Scholarship for Christian Education was created to honor a longstanding supporter and friend of the Tennessee Tech BSU. Miss Polly, as she was fondly called, stated, "...it is my hope that the recipient will teach Christian values as diligently as he/she teaches the 'three R's'. Although government can alter our methods of teaching, it cannot stop the love of God flowing through the life of the one who teaches." Miss Polly retired in 1986 after teaching 26 years and died in November, 2006. This scholarship was first presented in 1989.
- The Wiles Scholarship for Servant Leadership has been created to honor Dr. Joe and Anna Lee Wiles who have served as a team of directors since 1991.

Some former students wished to honor them for demonstrating servant leadership in the everyday service to students at the Tennessee Tech BCM. This scholarship was awarded for the first time in 2005.
