SCHOLARSHIPS

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 its inception in the fall 2015, twenty-one different students have received a total of $60,000 in scholarship awards! These awards are possible because of our endowment fund, and the support of your association directors.

APPLICATIONS

Scholarship applications for the Spring 2019 semester are being accepted now through Tuesday, January 8, 2019.
