College Scholarships

are offered to students from cooperating North Carolina Baptist churches who attend one of our affiliated educational institutions. Gifts made through the Cooperative Program make these scholarships possible.

The North Carolina Baptist Scholarship will be awarded to undergraduate full-time students attending one of the five North Carolina Baptist schools: Campbell University, Chowan University, Gardner-Webb University, Mars Hill University and Wingate University. It is renewable for a maximum of four years. The student must apply each year. Once the scholarship has been received, the student must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA to be eligible for the scholarship to be renewed. The GPA will be confirmed by the Scholarship Office at the end of the current academic year.

Students will be notified via email by June 1 for the 2015-2016 awards. If the scholarship is a renewal, the award is contingent upon the 2.5 GPA. We will communicate via the email submitted on your application. The Baptist Scholarship Office will notify the student, their church and the school of the award and the amount of the scholarship.

The 2015-2016 Scholarship Application deadline will end on March 31, 2015 at midnight.
