Honors Scholarship Competition

We have long been known by our students and alumni as a school that has generous scholarship assistance available. In keeping with that tradition, we offer eligible applicants the opportunity to compete for a Campbell Divinity Honors Scholarship. These scholarships can cover 75% or 100% of tuition and fees for either of the master-level divinity degrees offered at Campbell. Honors Scholarships can be distributed for fall and spring semester terms for entering students. There are a limited number of honors scholarships available to be distributed each academic year.

For these scholarships, we are looking for applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • Undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher
  • Evidence of significant ministry experience
  • Evidence of potential for leadership in ministry
  • Evidence of clear sense of vocational call to ministry

In order to be eligible, the candidate must apply for admission to Campbell Divinity School by the posted application deadline. After applying, the Admissions Committee will review the candidate’s admission application and extend an invitation to the candidate to be considered for an honors scholarship. Once the invitation is extended, the candidate will be asked to have an honors scholarship nomination letter submitted on her/his behalf. Nomination letters can be submitted by a pastor, campus minister, or professor. A nomination form will be provided to the applicant by the Admissions Committee. Once the nomination letter has been received and an admissions interview conducted, the candidate will be notified of her/his honors scholarship status.

Students who are awarded a 75% honors scholarship will need to maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 while enrolled in the Divinity School. Students who are awarded a full-tuition honors scholarship will need to maintain a minimum GPA of 3.5 while enrolled in the Divinity School. Full-time status is also required for renewal of the honors scholarship each semester. Honors scholarships can be applied to either master-level degrees for the duration of the student’s time at the Divinity School as long as these requirements are maintained.
