The purpose of the Mary Hill Davis Scholarship program is to provide support and encouragement to Texas Baptist ethnic/minority students who will serve as future lay and vocational ministry leaders in Texas Baptist ethnic/minority churches. The scholarship program is designed to assist students pursuing a bachelor’s degree at a Texas Baptist university. Eligible applicants must: show evidence of being actively engaged in their respective ethnic/minority culture; have a 3.0 GPA; be a US citizen or permanent resident; and be enrolled in at least 6 hours if part-time or be enrolled in at least 12 hours if full-time.
High school seniors must have pastor recommendation, current high school transcript and college acceptance verification. For new students, currently enrolled in college, a current transcript and proof of enrollment must accompany the application. All applicants, either first-time or renewal, must provide a letter of recommendation from the pastor of their church. Each renewal applicant must continue as an active member in in a Texas Baptist Ethnic/Minority church. Where ethnic/minority churches are unavailable the student will need to consult with the appropriate ethnic director.
