Baptist Scholarships

With its enthusiastic approach to worship, it’s no surprise that the Baptist faith would be equally enthusiastic about helping its adherents fund their education. Baptist churches have a vested interest in helping their members find money for college by providing both local scholarships and national awards. Baptist scholarships exist to assist members of the faith in attending college and achieving their educational goals. The Baptist faith believes strongly in providing service to the community and financial aid to those in need. Plus, organizations offering Baptist scholarships, like many other scholarship providers, hope that by giving you scholarship money now, they’re putting you in a position where you may be able to donate to their cause once you’re wealthy and successful. Just think—if you win a Baptist scholarship, avoid student loans, and eventually graduate and get a good job, why wouldn’t you want to return the favor a few years down the road and help a student just like you pay for school? Well, lots of people funding Baptist scholarships think that way—they might say it was the Christian thing to do.
