The goal of the Scholarship Ministry is to encourage deserving students to further their educational goals by providing them with scholarship opportunities.
The Scholarship Policy Guidelines and applications for new and renewal scholarships are now available to download below. Please adhere to the June 26 deadline that is noted for all scholarship applications.
The purpose of the White Rock Baptist Church (WRBC) Scholarship Fund is to demonstrate the church’s commitment to our young people in their endeavors toward attaining higher education. To this end, the Scholarship Ministry uses available funds to make awards to students who are members of the church and are pursuing their first undergraduate degree. Applicants will have the responsibility of adhering to the guidelines/policy set forth by the Scholarship Committee to meet eligibility.
WRBC is offering a limited number of scholarships to young people who will be matriculating as full-time students (carrying at least 12 semester hours) for the 2023-2024 academic year. Recipients must be members of WRBC, pursuing undergraduate studies in an accredited program leading towards their first post secondary degree. Scholarship awards are payable in two increments – first and second semester. Applications and our policy and general information are available below and are also available in the Church Office. Applications with ALL REQUESTED DATA must be received in the Church Office or postmarked no later than June 26, 2023. First time applicants will complete the New Scholarship Application. Previous recipients must submit the Renewal Application.
