Scholarships Available to Indiana Baptists

The Baptist Foundation of Indiana is proud to administer funds established by generous donors to provide scholarships to Indiana Baptists.  During the past 39 years, we have awarded over $220,000 in scholarships to 637 applicants!

Guidelines for Receiving Scholarship Funds – Scholarship funds are available to assist in college tuition costs for members of State Convention of Baptists in Indiana (SCBI) churches, who are preparing for vocational ministry. Scholarship funds are limited and are awarded based on need and parameters set by scholarship fund donors. Scholarships are not available for doctoral candidates. The Foundation accepts applications beginning November 1 for the following Fall/Spring academic school year. Applications and supportive documentation must be received by April 1 in order to be considered for a scholarship. Scholarship awards are determined in May.
