Scholarship applications are accepted and reviewed twice per year. The following are questions commonly asked about the scholarship program.

What is the application and grant cycle for the scholarship program?


 

Who is eligible to apply?

Each scholarship fund has specific eligibility criteria that were defined by the donor when the fund was established. Please read through the specific criteria to see if you are eligible for any of the funds.

How much does it cost to apply for a scholarship?

There is no charge to apply.

Are the scholarships awarded sufficient to pay the cost of my college education?

No. These scholarships are intended to provide only partial support. In addition to applying for scholarships through The Foundation, you should look into other financial aid resources such as federal grants, loans and work-study awards. A complete financial package can be put together by your high school counselor or your college financial aid office and may include a portion of each of the above types of financial aid.

If I'm awarded a scholarship, how much will I get?

Most scholarships offer varying award amounts, which range from $500 to $2,500, depending on the size of the particular fund, the number of qualified applicants, and the wishes of the donors.

Where can I go to school with these scholarships?

Unless noted differently under the scholarship description, the scholarships are for accredited schools anywhere in the United States. Unfortunately, we cannot make awards outside of the United States.

Do I need to pay scholarship money back?

No. These are charitable grants that do not need to be paid back.

If I am awarded a scholarship, do I get the check?

No. Award checks will be made payable to the institution and mailed shortly after selection, prior to the beginning of the semester.

What can my scholarship be used for?

Unless noted differently under the scholarship description, the scholarships are for any educational expenses: tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, and miscellaneous expenses.

If I receive a scholarship one term, will I automatically receive an award for the following term?

No. Students must complete the application process again in order to be considered again for a scholarship award.

B.R. Chamberlain Foundation Outstanding SBACS Scholar Award Program

The Outstanding Scholar program provides national recognition to students with exceptional academic achievement. The primary purpose of this program is to discover and recognize Southern Baptist Association of Christian School students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, Christian character and leadership skills. All qualifying applicants are recognized with a Distinguished Scholar certificate and press releases are sent to various news media, including Southern Baptist Press and SBACS eNews. Postings of the students’ achievements are sent to Southern Baptist Colleges and Universities and made available on our website. There are six college scholarships awarded to the top rated students made payable to the college or university of their choice. Two national scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each are awarded to the top two students. A student from each of the four SBACS regions is selected to receive a $500 scholarship.
