The Michigan Baptist Scholarship Society encourages American Baptist UMD, MDiv and MA students to apply for scholarships from MBSS. Go to the ABC-MI website to learn about the scholarships. The basic requirements are that one be an active member of an ABC church in Michigan, show evidence of God's call into professional church leadership, be accepted at an accredited college, university, or seminary, and have financial need. A faculty recommendation will be needed and then the MBSS Board will evaluate the applications. In 2010 the deadline for applications will be extended until November 1.
Full-time MBSS masters-level students in seminary can receive up to approximately $2,000 (especially if they are in ABC schools). Students who are carrying at least a half-time load may be eligible for partial support. MBSS recipients can also apply for up to $300 annually for approved special out-of-school activities, such as short-term mission trips or to attend special conferences.
