Emerging Regions Ministry Scholarship

Emerging Regions Ministry Scholarship


The Emerging Regions Ministry Scholarship is available to MA and MDiv students who are actively serving in a collegiate ministry position in an Emerging Region.  This scholarship is designed to assist students who are underfunded or raise their own support to participate in their collegiate position, therefore consideration for this scholarship will be based on student financial need.  If you have a question on whether or not a state is considered an emerging region, please contact the Financial Aid office at financialaid@nobts.edu
