Texas Baptists are concerned about higher education in a Christian atmosphere.

A dramatic expression of this concern is the Texas Black Baptist Scholarship Program which provides grants to help worthy, capable African American young people receive a Christian education. Applicants are eligible for $800.00 per year, for four years to those who qualify.

The scholarships are funded through the Mary Hill Davis Offering for State Missions sponsored annually by Woman’s Missionary Union

of Texas, Carolyn Porterfield, Executive Director-Treasurer.

As a result of this ministry to well deserving people, Isaiah’s admonition “Learn to do well” has come to stand for more effective service in Christ’s name.

All grants are for a maximum award of $3,200.00 over a four year period. The benefits are dispursed as follows: Full-time enrollment- $400.00 per semester or $266.66 per quarter; Part-time enrollment- pro-rated @ $33.33 per credit hour.
