National Presbyterian College Scholarship


The National Presbyterian College Scholarship program was created in partnership with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s related colleges and universities in the 1950s. The program seeks to assist Presbyterian students attending Presbyterian related schools. In 2010 Financial Aid for revised certain elements of the program to promote leadership development and discernment of vocation.

Twenty-five to thirty students will be selected for award. Those students will have an opportunity to renew the scholarship provided that they maintain a 2.5 GPA, participate in campus ministry or regularly attend church during college, and participate in discernment of vocation through a series of essay questions that ask the student to consider who God is calling them to be.
