The purpose of the Mary E. Bivins Religious Scholarship Program is to educate ministers to preach the Christian religion. Scholarships are provided for undergraduate (juniors or seniors only) and graduate education leading to a bachelors or masters degree in a field that prepares the student to preach the Christian religion. Priority will be given to students intending to serve as pulpit pastors upon graduation.
Scholarship awards are $2,500 per semester for undergraduate students classified as a junior or senior and $3,500 per semester for graduate students. Scholarship awards are to be used for tuition, books, fees, and other expenses as necessary for college/university attendance.
