Scholarship Application

General Information

Scholarships have been established to provide a financial resource to cover the costs of tuition, fees, and textbooks for worthy students of Tabernacle Baptist College, who have a financial need or deserve financial assistance.  Scholarships are considered on a case-by-case basis.


Contributions from individuals, groups, churches, organizations, businesses, or other entities fund these scholarships.


A Scholarship Approval Committee approves each scholarship.


If a scholarship is awarded, funds will be transferred from the scholarship fund to the student’s account.  Funds are never given directly to the students.  Any amount on a student’s account not covered by the scholarship is the student’s responsibility to pay.  Any unused portion of a scholarship will be returned to the scholarship fund.
