Church Matching Scholarship Program

Form, purpose, award amount and criteria

The Church Matching Form is to be completed by the student. We do not require a form to be completed by the church. 


John Brown University offers a limited number of matching scholarships from approved church scholarship programs. The intent of this matching fund is to encourage the home churches of students to make their pre-existing scholarship funds go twice as far, thus helping their young people who are enrolled at JBU.

Award amount

This fund will match dollar-for-dollar up to a $500 annual scholarship award ($250 per semester) given by a church from its designated educational scholarship funds.

Award criteria

Matching scholarship recipients must be in good academic standing (not on scholastic probation), not awarded over their calculated financial need (with other sources of financial aid), and must have
their home church complete the JBU Matching Scholarship Confirmation Form printed on the back of this announcement.
