Students applying for a Christian Ministry Scholarship must be born again Christians who are answering Godís call into full-time Christian ministry. These students plan to be salaried full-time ministers.
Scholarship applicants are required to have been accepted by the Office of Enrollment Services for admission to North Greenville University or they are currently enrolled students at the University.
Applicants must submit a letter of recommendation from their pastor along with this completed application.
Recipients are expected to live godly, moral lives at all times.
Recipients must study to show themselves approved unto God (2 Tim 2:15), maintaining at least a 2.5 GPA while at North Greenville University. Students who fall below this 2.5 GPA threshold at the end of spring semester will lose their scholarships. They may reapply for the scholarship after their GPA rises to a 2.5 or above.
Recipients are expected to be involved in worship and ministry at a local church.
All recipients are expected to attend the three Christian Ministry Scholarship Fund (CMSF) dinner meetings (in September, January, and April) of each academic year. Members of the CMSF will pay for the meals of all recipients and their spouses. Recipients bringing guests (other than their spouse) must pay for their guestís meal.
Scholarship recipients, out of appreciation for the financial assistance received from the CMSF, will share the ministry of the organization with friends and churches encouraging them to become members of the organization.
Out of appreciation for CMSF and its help in making their education possible, recipients are expected to become members of the organization when they complete their education. As members, they will join in the mission of equipping the next generation of ministers to prepare for the work that God is calling them to do.
Any recipient that drops out of the University should contact the Financial Aid Office and drop the scholarship.
Recipients who no longer feel called to the ministry should call the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible to drop their Christian Ministry Scholarship. These students are responsible to repay all the Christian Ministry Scholarship funds received in order to help other students who are called to the ministry. This is the ministry of the CMSF.
Recipients are expected to keep the organization aware of their current contact information (address and telephone number, etc.) after leaving North Greenville University.
ALL FIRST TIME RECIPIENTS MUST HAVE AN INTERVIEW WITH THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE CMSF. FAILURE TO APPEAR FOR THE INTERVIEW WILL RESULT IN AUTOMATIC FORFEITURE OF THE SCHOLARSHIP.
