Preparing for College
1. The student should notify Sara Vanvalkenburg, Office of Financial Aid, via e-mail of their intent to participate and apply for the Scripture Memory Scholarship. Please include the book(s) of the Bible that are intended to be memorized.
2. Begin memorization.
3. The student should then recite memorized book in front of two or more witnesses who will attest to their achievement. The witnesses will be required to complete the Scripture Memory Scholarship Verification form. This form must be submitted to Sara Vanvalkenburg, Office of Financial Aid, on or before Monday, August 31, 2020.
The student should notify the Office of Financial Aid that they are ready for verification by the Scholarship Advisory Committee and schedule a recitation meeting. The recitation meetings will occur Wednesday, September 16th from 1-3:00 p.m., and Thursday, September 17th from 2-4:00 p.m. The panel will validate the memorization of the passage by quizzing the student to randomly recite various portions. This meeting will not exceed 30 minutes. The Scholarship Advisory Committee will not ask the student to quote a specific set of verses such as quoting John 3:16-19. Rather, they might ask, “John 3:14 says, ‘Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.’ Could you please continue from there?
4. Upon verification by the Scholarship Advisory Committee of the complete memorization of the book chosen, the student will be awarded the scholarship.
Scholarship amounts vary by book of the Bible.
