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. Available to students majoring in Religion or minoring in Interfaith Leadership, Christian Studies or Religion.

Amounts have been significant and are likely to be renewed but could change over time based upon the continuance of the fund and also the number of Religion majors and minors.
