Kern Ministry Scholarship

The School of Theology & Ministry is pleased to announce the Kern Ministry scholarship. Ten students will be selected from among the 2013 incoming class of Kern students to receive five-year scholarships in the following designations:

Twelve students will receive a $9,000 undergraduate scholarship ($3,000 per year renewable for three years) along with a 44% loan-grant discount for years 4 and 5 during the master's portion of the program.

Scholarships will be awarded by the Kern Scholarship Committee based on students' promise for academic excellence and pastoral ministry leadership. Students who are awarded the Kern Scholarship are expected to maintain a 3.5 gpa, participate in Kern Scholar activities (including a weekly mentoring session), and consistently participate in ministry leadership on campus throughout their undergraduate years. Students may apply the Kern Scholar scholarship to tuition, room and board, and books.

To be eligible for the Kern Scholar scholarship, students must first apply to the Kern Ministry Education Program. From among the applicants, the most qualified students will be selected to interview for the program and possibly be recognized as Kern Scholars.

Students will be evaluated based on (1) an essay, "My Call to Ministry"; (2) an essay, "Where I See Myself in Ten Years"; (3) an interview with members of the Kern Scholarship Committee and current Kern Scholars.

The admission interview and Kern Ministry Education Program preview will take part of a day. Parents and students will participate in a tour of the School of Theology & Ministry facilities, a question-answer time with faculty and current students, and a Kern Ministry Education information session during which the student will receive details regarding scheduling and student expectations.
