Religion Scholarships

Small Classes, Big Scholarships

Our religion majors and minors benefit from significant scholarship opportunities, with amounts ranging from a few hundred dollars to a full ride:

Templeton Scholarships for Religion Majors and Minors

The goal of the Templeton Fund is to provide financial resources for students whose specific vocational aspirations include mindful service and ministry to others.

For Spring 2021, we can offer scholarships up to the following:

  • $5,000 for a declared minor in Interfaith Leadership, Christian Studies, or Religion
  • $10,000 for a declared major in Religion

Likely to be renewed, but the amounts could change over time based upon the continuance of the fund and also the number of Religion majors and minors. The Religion department will re-evaluate late Spring 2021 to determine awards for Fall/Spring 2021-2022.
