Greenville Seminary Establishes Bible Presbyterian Church Scholarship Fund

Endowed scholarship will cover full tuition and fees for one student per year.

The Seminary also offers several other named scholarships: International Student Scholarships, Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) & Student Ministry Fellows Awards, and the John & Mildred Van Voorhis Endowed Scholarship. The Seminary offers financial aid to students from regularly supporting students through its Church Waiver Program as well.

 

Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary (GPTS) has announced the creation of the GPTS Bible Presbyterian Church Endowed Scholarship Fund. Once fully resourced, this fund will provide one full-time resident student in the MDiv program with a full-tuition scholarship for four years of full-time study. Applicants for the scholarship will be required to provide a formal recommendation letter from a presbytery of the Bible Presbyterian Church, General Synod (BPC) which has received the student “Under Care” prior to matriculation. The purpose of the scholarship is to equip men for ordained preaching and pastoral ministry in the BPC.

Recipients of the scholarship must maintain full-time status through to the completion of their degree, remain in residence for at least three years of the program, maintain at least a 3.0 GPA throughout the scholarship period, and hold membership in a BPC congregation during their time at the Seminary. Upon graduation, recipients must serve as an intern or minister in a BPC congregation for a minimum of three years, if extended a call.

“Through generous support from longtime friends of the Seminary, we have been able this year to establish a modest endowment that will directly support students in years to come,” remarks Director of Advancement & Admissions Zachary Groff. “We have longstanding relationships with many Reformed and Presbyterian denominations around the world, and we are excited to continue cultivating our relationship with the Bible Presbyterian Church in this way as we furnish the denomination with ministers.”
