Baptist Church Matching Scholarship
Baylor matches outside scholarship assistance from a student's Baptist church, state Baptist convention, or Baptist affiliated program up to $1,000 per academic year (excluding summer). Funds are matched upon receipt of the scholarship check(s) and the completed Baptist Church Matching certification form. We reserve the right to determine appropriate convention and Baptist affiliated programs. Matching funds are available as long as the church continues to provide scholarship support and the student is enrolled full-time and maintains a minimum 2.5 Baylor cumulative GPA. Please report the church portion of the scholarship by completing the Outside Scholarship Report Form (Log in using your BearID (firstname_lastname) and password).

Students must provide documentation of their parent's full-time employment in a ministerial capacity by a Baptist church or other Baptist entity. Additionally, students must demonstrate financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
