Each year, Baylor University hosts a one-day visit and scholarship competition for prospective students who have selected Religion as their major or minor and who intend to pursue Christian vocational ministry. The event date is Friday, January 25, 2019. While all who attend the scheduled day and enroll at Baylor in the Fall 2019 semester will receive a one-time $1,000 scholarship, one participant will be selected to receive a $10,000 per year scholarship ($5,000/semester), renewable for up to four years (up to $40,000 total). This Baylor2Seminary program additionally streamlines admission into Truett Seminary provided the student meets the program criteria and awards the student a 100% tuition Truett scholarship for those that complete the undergrad program with at least a 3.25 GPA. The recipient also has the opportunity to receive credit for up to 18 hours toward his or her Truett Seminary degree, thus accelerating the completion time for earning the master's degree. Applications for the opportunity to attend the Baylor2Seminary event are due to the Admissions office by 9 a.m. (CST) on Monday, December 3rd. For updates regarding specific deadline dates and further information, please check Baylor University’s Undergraduate Admissions website for Baylor2 Programs.
