Additionally, there are several avenues for students to receive additional scholarship and financial aid.
Mary Hill Davis Ethnic Scholarship
This is a scholarship that is awarded by the Baptist General Convention of Texas to Baptist students from ethnic/minority backgrounds planning to attend a Texas Baptist university. For more information, visit the BGCT website.
BGCT Ministerial Financial Assistance (MFA) Scholarship
The Baptist General Convention of Texas provides financial assistance to Baptist students who are attending Texas Baptist Schools and preparing for careers in church-related vocations. Eligible freshman and sophomore students receive $50 per semester hour, and eligible junior or senior students receive $75 per semester hour. An applicant for the MFA scholarship must show evidence of a divine call to church-related vocational ministry, must demonstrate a lifestyle of commitment to the principles of Christian life, and must be an active member of a Baptist* church. Students receiving the scholarship must complete, at minimum, a minor in Christian Studies (see the Christian Studies degree requirements page in this catalog). To apply for the scholarship, first-year students must complete the UMHB Ministry Scholarship Application form and the BGCT First-Year Certification form (with Church Certification). To remain on the scholarship after the first year, students must complete the Certification Renewal Form each year. The scholarship works in conjunction with other tuition-based scholarships toward the tuition portion of the student’s bill. The UMHB Director of Church Relations must verify eligibility.
Applications are available in the office of the College of Christian Studies or from the UMHB Director of Church Relations.
