Baptist Scholarships

With its enthusiastic approach to worship, it’s no surprise that the Baptist faith is equally enthused about helping its adherents pursue higher 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 help members of their church attend college and achieve their educational goals. The Baptist faith strongly believes in community service, providing financial aid to those in need. The Baptist Church, like many other scholarship providers, give scholarship money to students they think will grow to become productive members of society and their organization.
