Christian Scholarships

If you practice Christianity under any denomination or movement, you’re in luck. There are a number of scholarship opportunities out there for Christian college-bound students, both specific to a denomination and more generally for Christian scholarship seekers. Whether you’re looking to study theology, come from a missionary background, want to enter into a seminary school, or are simply someone who identifies him or herself as Christian, make sure you do your research into the funding available out there, as a number of private organizations and foundations have funding earmarked to help you cover your college costs. A good resource may also be the church or faith-based organization you belong to, or contacting the college you’ll be applying to directly, especially if it’s a private, religious institution.
