How to apply for scholarships

The application forms for named scholarships are available every year beginning December 1 and must be submitted by February 1. All of the scholarships for first-year students and current students are available online. All students who will be enrolled next academic year are encouraged to apply.

The Congregational and Ministry Studies department is pleased to have two named scholarships awarded each year.

The Harriet De Jong Memorial Scholarship
Dale and Marcia Cooper established this scholarship to honor the memory of Marcia’s mother and to assist a student in the Congregational and Ministry Studies Department. “Grandma D”, as they affectionately called her, deeply loved each of her children and grandchildren and worked tirelessly to help them receive a Christian higher education.

Carol and James Lont Scholarship for the Research, Study and Renewal of Distinctively Reformed Youth Development
Carol and James Lont were nurtured in the institutions of the Reformed faith – homes, schools, and churches. It has been the desire of Carol and Jim that young people everywhere might know the personal joy and effectiveness in society of those marked by sturdy Reformed thinking and action. This scholarship is designed to assist in the understanding and renewal of a Biblically Reformed development of youth everywhere—so that they may become well-prepared servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, serving Him gratefully, always, and everywhere in His world.
