This year Blount County Beekeepers Association (BCBA) will award six beekeeping grants. Three grants will be awarded in conjunction with the Tennessee Beekeepers Association (TBA), and three Charlie Stewart Grants will be awarded by BCBA.

Blount County Beekeepers Association established the Charlie Stewart Scholarship program in memory of one of its longstanding and honored members. The scholarship is funded by an annual auction of beekeeping equipment, baked goods and other beekeeping paraphernalia in the spring. Proceeds from the auction also help support the TBA grants.

Please follow the link to read the requirements for the grants, an application, and instructions on how to apply. Deadline for application is March 9th.
