Seeking Applicants for the GuideOne Foundation Scholarship Program
Once again, the GuideOne Foundation will be awarding four $2,500 scholarships to students who are actively pursuing a future career in ministry. If you know someone who is seeking a leadership role in one of America’s religious organizations, please encourage them to apply for the scholarship. To gain more program awareness among church congregations and students of higher education institutions, commercial agents also are urged to share this information with their customers. Examples of how churches can share this with their members include putting announcements in Sunday bulletins, adding information to their website, and creating fliers about the scholarship and distributing them to congregation members.
To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria:
- Must be a junior, senior or graduate religious studies student, or an individual in seminary.
- Students must be attending accredited colleges, universities or seminaries within the United States and District of Columbia.
- Minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25 is required.
- Essay, transcript (official or unofficial) and one letter of recommendation are required.
More information, including the online application, can be found on GuideOne.com under the GuideOne Foundation page. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2016. Applications must be received online and in full. Please note that GuideOne agents or children of agents are eligible to apply.
