Free Will Baptist Scholarships

Your college choice is one of your first big steps into adulthood! If you decide to make Welch your home away from home, you will find that our Christian community is the perfect place to help you make a successful transition into adulthood.

But let’s face it—college is expensive. Because we know this is the case, we have scholarships for Free Will Baptist students who desire to be an on-campus, traditional student. Below are some of the big ones, but be sure to speak with your admissions counselor to discover more scholarship opportunities.

You will receive a $1,000 scholarship for every year you participate in ETEAM!

So, if you are on an ETEAM for your sophomore, junior, and senior year of high school, that means you’ve just earned a $3,000 scholarship! But, keep in mind, this scholarship cannot be used up during your freshman year of college—because you earned it over 3 years, you’ll need to spend it over 3 years.

(And, yes, this scholarship can be stacked on all other scholarships including the Truth & Peace and CTS/YET scholarships.)

You will receive a $1,000 scholarship for every year you are a Category D winner in the CTS competition or you are selected for YET!

So as an example, if you are a Category D CTS winner for your sophomore and junior year of high school, and then you are selected for YET as a high school senior, that means you’ve just earned $3,000!

But, keep in mind, this scholarship cannot be used up during your freshman year of college—because you earned it over 3 years, you’ll need to spend it over 3 years. (And, yes, this scholarship can be stacked on all other scholarships including the Truth & Peace scholarship.)

            

You will receive a $1,000 scholarship for every year you participate in Truth and Peace!

So as an example, if you participate in Truth and Peace for your freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year of high school then you’ve just earned $4,000 in scholarships!

But, keep in mind, this scholarship cannot be used up during your freshman year of college—because you earned it over 4 years, you’ll need to spend it over 4 years. (And, yes, this scholarship can be stacked on all other scholarships including the ETEAM and CTS/YET scholarships.)

Did you know Welch offers up to $10,000 per year for Pastoral Ministry or Youth and Family Ministry majors? That’s right! All approved applicants will be raised to the Presidential Honors level ($10,000) of the ACT/SAT/CLT scholarship. Additional scholarships may be stacked. If an approved applicant already qualifies for the Presidential Honors level, an appeal may be submitted requesting additional scholarship money. In order to be approved, students must:

  • Complete the Ministry Scholarship application.
  • Be approved by the Ministry Scholarship Committee.
  • Receive a recommendation from a Free Will Baptist pastor.
  • Be a new or transfer student for the fall 2020 semester.
  • Major in Pastoral Ministry or Youth and Family Ministry.
  • Be a member in good standing with a Free Will Baptist church.
  • Possess a desire to seek eventual ordination in the Free Will Baptist Church.

This $2,500 per year award is available to students whose fathers are the primary pastors of a Free Will Baptist church, full-time Free Will Baptist International and North American Missionaries.
