External Scholarship Sources From Baptist Partners


Golden Gate Seminary gladly cooperates with Southern Baptist partners throughout our nation to assist students in ministry preparation. Many SBC state conventions, foundations, associations, agencies and individual churches support students directly through scholarships, grants or loans. Most of these “external” organizations govern their own procedures and systems, and quite often post different application deadlines. Direct contact with these sources should provide students with current scholarship information/applications unique to each institution. NOTE: An Asterisk (*) denotes further information/applications sometimes available through the Northern California Campus Student Services Office
