The Florida Baptist Association – the local association of Southern Baptist churches in the Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson and Franklin counties of Florida – offers educational scholarships to persons serving in a church-appointed staff position of a cooperating Florida Baptist Association church. Applicants must be serving in a ministerial level position, and be enrolled in a degree-seeking bachelor’s or master’s program at a Southern Baptist college or seminary. Scholarships are only applicable for coursework attempted in the fall and spring semesters. Deadlines for application submission will be posted and updated.

Since we began this initiative in the fall of 2015, our Association has provided a total of nearly $90,000 in scholarship money to 28 different individuals. Each of them were staff members or interns of our association churches who were pursuing graduate and undergraduate education pertinent to their calling to ministry.


Scholarship applications are now being accepted.

The deadline for submission is Monday, January 6, 2020.

Submit completed materials via email to smcmahon@floridabaptistassociation.org.
