Mother Statha M. Lewis saw the need for assistance for individuals attending college within the Southwest Michigan 4th Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction to specifically provide educational scholarships for students entering college.

Mother Lewis named the scholarship fund in recognition of the late Bishop John Seth Bailey Presiding Prelate of Southwestern Michigan Jurisdiction & the late Dr. Mary Lou Belvin, Southwestern Michigan Jurisdiction Supervisor of the Department of Women.

Since its founding in 1996, the Bailey * Belvin Chapter Scholarship Fund has awarded over $150,000 in scholarships to those who were eligible in furthering their academic studies in higher learning institutions nationwide.
