Christian Student Scholarship

This endowed scholarship was established in 2010 to provide annual financial support to Christian students that might otherwise not be able to afford a Briarcrest education. Awards are earned by students that are professing Christians with a clear testimony, have a background of service and are active in their home church. The scholarship is renewed each year provided the student has a satisfactory academic record and continues their involvement in Christian ministry and service opportunities.

The Christian Student Scholarship began with initial support from an anonymous donor. Other gifts from donors interested in expanding this scholarship to serve more students should contact Josh Davis in the BCS Development Office at 901-765-4665 or jrdavis@briarcrest.com.
