Careers & Calling » Scholarships


Through the CBFNC budget and the Mission Resource Plan, CBFNC provides significant scholarship assistance to students engaged in theological education.

A major focus of the Leadership Development Ministry Council is the four partnering seminaries in North Carolina (Campbell, Duke, Gardner-Webb and Wake Forest). They receive equal grants and choose scholarship recipients who have strong potential for ministerial leadership in our churches.  

Campbell, Amber Johnson-Carter
Duke Baptist House, Callie Davis
Gardner-Webb, Kheresa Harmon
Wake Forest, Shonda Jones


Students from North Carolina who attend theological schools outside of our state apply for scholarships directly with CBFNC. The Leadership Development Ministry Council reviews the applications and selects the recipients.

"Thank you so much for your generous support of me and for making my theologicial education possible."

"It is truly a blessing to know that I am supported by an organization in which I love and believe. This scholarship has truly made my next year of study possible."

Undergraduate Applications

CBFNC does not provide scholarships for undergraduates directly. The funding from our Misson Resource Plan and budget gives money directly to the seven NC Baptist colleges to distribute through scholarships and other means. Contact the school directly to inquire.

Also, CBF National signed a historic agreement with NC Baptist Colleges and Universities for scholarships for qualifying children of CBF Global Missions field personnel. Read more.
