The David E. Garland Scholarship Fund was established May 12, 2017 in honor of Dr. David E. Garland’s selfless service as interim president of Baylor University.

In times of need, Dr. Garland stepped forward to provide exceptional leadership, steadfast commitment to the mission of this institution and continued support for our students. On May 26, 2016, Dr. Garland accepted the appointment as Baylor University interim president and began his service on June 1, 2016. His patience, wisdom, and humble servant-leadership have provided vital support and stability for the future and progress of the University.

This dedication to the institution and our students has been a hallmark of Dr. Garland’s tenure at Baylor. He first served as interim president of Baylor from August 2008 through May 2010, followed by a period as interim provost from July 2014 to June 2015. Dr. Garland served as the Dean of Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary from June 2007 to June 2015. 

May the future recipients of the David E. Garland Scholarship Fund develop an appreciation and awareness of the importance of a life lived in service, as exemplified by Dr. Garland’s distinguished tenure at Baylor. 

On behalf of the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Baylor University, the Baylor Board of Regents established this lasting tribute to honor the sacrificial service and leadership exhibited by Dr. David E. Garland. This scholarship fund provides scholarship assistance to deserving students attending Baylor’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary.
