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 2015, our Association has provided a total of nearly $100,000 in scholarship money to twenty-eight different individuals; each of them staff members or interns of association churches who are pursuing graduate and undergraduate education pertinent to their calling to ministry.
