Scholarships

The WMU Foundation assists Baptist students, including the children of Baptist missionaries, and those preparing for Baptist missions service. Individuals with no Baptist connection cannot be considered for a scholarship. 

The deadline for 2017 applications has passed. Applications for 2018 scholarships will be available on this website by September 2017.

Checklist for applicants

  • You must complete and submit the application online by February 1st.
  • You must ask two references to submit an online endorsement form by the deadline of February 1st:

  1. The first endorsement should be completed by a WMU or missions-related connection. We recognize that many students, especially missionary kids, do not personally know a WMU leader. Other acceptable endorsement options are your pastor, a recent church minister, or a missions leader.

  2. A second endorsement should be completed by an academic source such as a recent teacher or professor.

  • Your application is considered incomplete until your references have submitted the endorsement form. Applications that are incomplete as of February 1st cannot be considered for a scholarship.
     
  • You do not need to tell us which scholarship you are applying for. We will review your application and place it in every scholarship category for which you qualify.
