  • Scholarship Description
  • The National Presbyterian College Scholarship program was created with the Presbyterian Church (USA)'s related colleges and universities in the 1950’s. The program seeks to assist Presbyterian students attending Presbyterian related schools. In 2010 the Office of Financial Aid for Service office reviewed the program and revised certain elements of the program to promote leadership development and discernment of vocation. This emphasis allows students to not only gain valuable knowledge for the world, but also to engage with discovering who God created them to be. Between twenty
    -five and thirty-five students will be selected for the award.

    Those students will have the opportunity to renew the scholarship provided they maintain at 2.5 GPA, participate in a campus ministry or regularly attend church during college, and participate in discernment of vocation through a series of
    essay questions that ask the student to consider who God is calling them to be.
